For Sale: Organiasm Banjo-one of a kind custom

Roger Skipper of Garrett County, Maryland doesn’t make many instruments in a year and he makes even fewer banjos sticking mostly to guitars and mandolins. The instruments that he does turn out are perfection defined. Fit, finish, durability, and playability just can’t be beaten and this one epitomizes all of those attributes.

For your consideration is a Skipper Custom Instruments “Organiasm Banjo” Serial Number #14 158 and it truly is one of a kind, the dream of a master luthier.

It’s whole story along with great pics of it’s construction can be found here

skipperstrings.com/B%20158.html

This one is as mint as you can get. New hardshell case included.

No metal in this one, everything is organic including a grain alcohol finish

Other specs are listed here:

tension hoop and flesh hoop are black locus
Ebony “hooks” to hold the head on
bone frets
mahogany block rim
mahogany neck

It weighs only 32 ounces and it sounds like the mountains, like you just dug it out of the ground.

I can’t say enough good about this banjo. Here is a video of her in action.

I have it tuned to regular “G” tuning but if you tune it down into the lower registries like “D” or “C” it really roars just like all banjos with a hide head and nylgut strings—a superb combination!

I acquired it in a trade with the intention of selling it for a profit as I will need a down payment on a house in the near future and that’s what I’m doing. That’s the only reason for a sale or I’d be keeping this as an heirloom.
