This is the 25th banjo I have built. It was started in December 2015 and finished in January 2016. The wood is cherry with a jatoba fretboard and maple bridge. It has Gotoh raw brass tuners, a brass tension hoop that I made myself and the rest of the brass hardware came from Balsam Banjo Works. The fretwire is EVO Gold. The position marker dots in the fretboard are brass. Renaissance head on a 12″ block rim with a wood tone ring profile turned into the top. The neck has a two way truss rod accessed through the heel. The nut is made from Corian. The banjo has a Tru Oil finish. The scale length is 25-1/2″ and the nut width is 1-3/8″.
