Narrow head Banjo
#46  2015

I restaured this little 11in English banjo adding a new finger board, head overlay, and heel cap. I made the neck wide, scooped and confortable to play. I also had to reset the neck angle as often on these old banjos. The head was much narrower than usual, this gives an originality to this banjo and I designed the inlays accordingly (only circles or half-circles of different sizes in different configurations).
Nylon strings, calfskin head.

This is my main banjo at the moment, It's a pleasure to play.
