Banjo #013- The Poplar Leaves

Details:

This Banjo boasts a 12 inch rock maple pot, birdseye maple neck, and beautifully figured Patagonia Rosewood fretboard.  The detailed brass work from the aged brass hardware to the tree cutout on the peghead overlay make this banjo one of a kind. The inlay on this banjo is inspired by the leaf of the Tulip Poplar tree, and the logo of the customer's band. The Mallee Burl branches sway in rhythm with the grain of the rosewood feetboard, and the fall leaves teeter on the brink of winter. A first for Blackberry Banjo Co., this banjo comes with a Kavanjo pickup. With a Romero-style dowel and geometric inlay strip set into the rim, this banjo is a beauty from peghead to tailpiece.
