074 Hillary Hawke Eclipse Engraved Banjo

This banjo was custom built for Hillary Hawke who is an accomplished clawhammer and three finger banjo player and teacher. She sent me block prints made by her friend and artist, Nancy Hunt, and I turned one and pieces of others into the inlays found on the fingerboard. The banjo was based around my Eclipse model in Cherry and Ebony.
