April banjos and a guitar

Banjo #145 was my first completed instrument in April.  It is a C scale made from cherry with somewhat wavy grain, not tight enough to be called curly.

The other two April banjos are #146 and #147, both 12″, curly maple and cherry respectively.  They are both shown on the Banjos page.

My last project in April was a left handed guitar based on a Gibson L-0.  It has curly birch for the back and sides, Adirondack spruce for the soundboard, African mahogany for the neck, and walnut binding.

My plans for May are to build four or five banjos, depending on how the time goes.

    Hey Zach, #145 is safely in its new Edmonds, Washington home and is getting put through its paces daily… Thanks again for working with me through the build, answering patiently all my newbie questions and for creating such a wonderful instrument. Stay well and stay healthy…
