K˘etsu's Flowers Banjo
#42  2013

This was an old English 7 strings banjo which I have modified into a 5 string banjo with a quite wide and confortable neck. I have added inlays inspired by a Japanese artist from the beginning of 17th century, Hon'Ami Koetsu, known as a leader of the renaissance of classical culture in Kyoto calligraphy.
Steel strings, calfskin head, 12in pot.
