Built by Jason in his Arcata California workshop. One day several years ago I called his workshop and asked what he had for sale. He offered me this banjo which was at the time his personal instrument.
The banjo has a 2 piece Brazilian cherry neck with a J3 peghead. The 13 inch rim is Brazilian cherry with katalox and bubinga interchangeable tone ring. The fingerboard is cocobolo with a cocobolo peghead veneer, heel and rim cap. The inlay is a custom design "thistle" inlay of gold mother of pearl. It features a kerschner tailpiece, and a hard oil finish. It comes in a quality, well padded, tight fitting hard case. Banjo scale length is 25&1/2 inches. Width at nut is 1&5/16 inches
I will be bringing the banjo with me to Texas on August 1. Please let me know if you are interested in owning thi beautiful instrument. Write for more photos.
