Companion Custom Banjos:
We are a fast growing company located in Ann Arbor Michigan. The name Companion comes from the bond we know you will make with your instrument. We specialize in custom hand made resonator banjos. Your banjo can be built to your specs, or we can help you create the best banjo for you based on your needs as a musician. We have built for pro and novice players in the US and Canada, and we are happy to provide many customer references.
Start to finish usually takes a several months depending on specs. It's worth the wait! We keep each customer updated during the building process with photos, emails and even videos. Also, follow us on our Face Book page or website for the available line models and news from the shop. (They go fast!)
We can do custom necks, rims, tone rings, fretboards, inlays, binding head stock shapes etc. The models (shown in the pictures) start at $1800 some metal tone ring models sell for more depending on the ring. We can also make custom necks for some existing pots.
Deposit required: Once deposit is received payments can be made as we build or all upon completion. We ship the banjos well packed and insured, or if within 8hr drive they can be hand delivered. Give us a call or email. We are always happy to chat with fellow banjo enthusiasts!
