Violjo - Modern Minstrel Style 5 String Open Back Banjo

This banjo was a custom commissioned work. The scroll is patterned after the Antonio Stradivari 'Archinto' Viola but was enlarged proportionally to accommodate the standard banjo neck width at the nut. The neck and body were made from the same block of Curly Maple. You will see the violin scroll motif throughout the instrument including the bracket shoes and tailpiece. The large cast bronze brackets were designed by the gentleman that commissioned the work.
