#285- Walnut and Pistachio Mini Five String Banjo

This banjo was a great excuse to use some walnut from the Carpenter Ant stash (Portland, OR) that has some beautiful light colored sap wood.  When I laid it out with as a five piece neck it made for a very unique instrument.  The reddish, striped pistachio is from California orchards.  From the west coast all the way to England, its always hard to send these off, but I can't keep them all!
