Banjo #008- The hummingbird

Details:

The combination of different types of Maple in this banjo make for a unique look and bold tone. The Walnut bound fretboard and other Walnut trimmings help the Maple to stand out even more. The hummingbird inlay is composed of Walnut, Buckeye Burl, Ebony, and Ivoroid, and the flower is made of Osage Orange, Yellowheart, and Ebony. This banjo's look is rounded out with a Romero-style Maple dowel stick and Curly Maple and Walnut armrest.
