098 – Buckbee Style 10″ Cherry Banjo

/ / Banjos

This project started as a replacement neck for an old rim. When the rim turned out to be not sturdy enough and not in good enough condition for a new neck the decision was made to just build a whole new banjo in the style of the classic banjo maker Buckbee with a few modern details instead. It’s a very fun little banjo and a great size for someone who’s looking for a smaller banjo.
