Includes everything you need to build your own gourd banjo!
No woodworking experience required! No tools required!
Finally you can own an affordable gourd banjo. With over 100 banjo kits sold, be one of the many satisfied customers; choose CARVERBANJOS.
A simple banjo design that still offers a few extra comforts of higher-end instruments, like the double ogee on the fingerboard that indicates the 5th, 7th and 12th fret positions.
This kit includes everything needed to assemble a fully playable banjo. All you need is wood-glue for the neck. The entire process takes about two hours, following detailed instructions provided. Made of hardwood maple and featuring hand-carved walnut tuning pegs, nut and bridge. With a leather tailpiece and goatskin head. This would certainly be a fun weekend project for someone of any level of banjo experience.
This banjo is ideal for the clawhammer banjo player: fretless with a built-in frailing scoop.
It is fun and easy to put together and sounds great!
