The second custom banjo to leave my shop this year is completed and will be on its way to Maryland next week with me as I travel to the Folk Musicians Retreat. Its owner Pat the Loafer will be giving me a place to sleep the day before the retreat and we will be hanging out and making some music on his new banjo prior to the Retreat.
Pat wanted a curly maple banjo similar to the BM09001 I built for myself earlier this year. We worked closely together on the custom inlay design of this banjo and it turned out awesome! It features a Cocobolo Tone ring and appointments, curly maple pot and neck, Buzzard Mountain Traditional headstock design and a frailing scoop.
Here are a few photos for Pat to drool over as he too has to wait until next week to get this beauty in his hands.
