5-String Flush-Fret Openback Banjo - Lefty

5-String Flush-fret Openback Banjo inspired by 19th century traditions. This work was commissioned as a Left handed model. I drew inspiration from the work of Edwin J. Cubley of Ravenwood, Illinois c. 1880 on the peghead and from A. C. Fairbanks c. 1880, Boston, MA with the neck-root cutout, 5th peg feature and hardware. The inlaid fret pattern is based on a commonly used pattern from the 1870's - 80's only it is mirrored to accommodate a left handed player.
The neck is constructed from American Black Walnut and the neck and dowel are in one piece. The rim and fingerboard are of matching Rosewood. The peghead inlay is based on Cubley's work and the tailpiece is handcarved from bone. This instrument was made in 2008.
