YN Tubaphone
#32  2008

The neck was made on a 11in Vega Tubaphone for a French friend.
This is my own version of the classical Flower Pot as often seen on these Tubaphones. The first fret inlay is very close to an inlay by Doug Unger; I liked it so much that I wanted to make one, once. The YN initials on the heel are the initials of this musician friend that banjo was made for. And Y & R, on last fret of the neck are the initials of Him and his Wife, because you always see them both on Music Festivals, and everywhere. She does not play music but enjoys it. You will certainly meet them in Clifftop one of these days...
