070 – Curly Maple and Brass Custom Banjo

/ / Banjos

This banjo was based on the Mahogany Custom Model with some great twists. The green purflings were swapped with a classic violin style purfling, the inlays were changed to abalone and brass dots, and some brass inlays were added to the scoop and rear of the peghead. The heel carving and brass inlays are heavily influenced by the work of Jason Romero. The striking red stain creates a wonderful contrast with the Zircote appointments and maple accent lines. The Honduran Rosewood tone ring paired with the calf skin head gives it a rich and wonderful well rounded tone that is the desire of every clawhammer player around.
