11″ African Rosewood/Birds Eye Maple

Posted in Newly Completed Banjos on April 3, 2010 by melrosebanjocompany

I have been experimenting with variations of rosewood in banjo rims for sometime. This particular prototype has a 11″ 2 ply African Rosewood laminated rim setup with a 1/4″ rolled brass tone ring. It turned out to be a great combination. I will build more once I get caught up on current banjo orders.

It has now found its new home in Oklahoma.

This is the most recent banjo completed in my shop and now has a happy home in Louisiana. I will be adding more banjos in the next few days.
