Six String Banjo

February 3rd, 2012 by

I recently completed a six string banjo commissioned by guitarist Ronnie Montrose . Ronnie (who can play anything with strings on it) couldn’t find an “off the shelf” banjo with the particular specs he wanted, so he asked if I could build one for him. I built this banjo with a 1 ⅞” wide neck at the nut, and with the neck profile Ronnie prefers. I used presentation grade curly maple for the neck and built the resonator with a veneer of incredible quilted maple.
