Arp Banjo
#29  2006

Exceptionally this is a 4 string banjo, which I don't usually make, for a dynamic and inventive young musician in Lyon who was ready to try something different of what is usually seen. He agreed on this project based on the work of famous artist Hans Arp (1886-1966). Most of the inlay patterns are taken from his work and are arranged on the neck to tell a simple little story, "old as the world" (as we say in French).
All inlays are from different type of shell.

As you noticed there is a microphone flush with the fingerboard , there will also be another one just above the bridge, like on electric guitars.
