154 – 12″ Claro Walnut Slothead Banjo

/ / Banjos

This 12″ Claro Walnut slothead banjo showcases some stunning wood paired with tasteful details. Claro Walnut is known for it’s beautiful color variations and when it’s figured as this example is it’s a sight to behold. This wood did not disappoint! The tone is even more rich than the visual the wood provides and the Honduran Rosewood tone ring with the Menzies Goat skin head makes for a banjo you don’t want to put down. The brass scoop plate features an acid etched design using an original M.C. Escher tessellation sketch. Being a huge M.C. Escher fan since a young child it was fun to incorporate a hint of his inspirational artwork on a banjo.
