#277 Maple and Pistachio Full Size Five String Banjo

I am so excited to get back to building five string banjos!  This one features:

-11 Inch, all wood block rim with pistachio tone ring.

-25.5" scale length pistachio fret board with 17 frets and frailing scoop.

-USA made brass hardware from Balsam banjo works and Brooks Masten

-All domestic wood.  Maple or walnut with pistachio trim.  

This robust block rim with pistachio makes for a unique voice, loud and vibrant yet rich and detailed.  Great for solo work or with a string band. 

Just got the banjo today and what a beautifully crafted instrument! I hope that I can do it justice.
