Banjo #002- The Rusty Poppies
This specialty made banjo is made from a single log of Slovakian Mountain Ash harvested from the customer's wife's yard where she grew up. The tree was chopped down ten years prior to its construction and was stored on their property to cure. Because of the Slovakian origins of the wood, we designed a poppy flower inlay of brass and padauk, and rusty steel overlay made from her father's workshop flooring. The hardware all originally nickel was stripped of it's nickel plating and the raw steel and brass have been left to age over time.
