Built in May 2008. 6-string Classic Model. Cedar top with rosewood back and sides. Checkered purfling and posette, Brazilian rosewood peghead and bridge. Ebony fingerboard. Planetary geared tuners. Koa Binding.
“The classical 6-string banjola is a joy. The extra bass string is sonorous, the midrange honks, and it still has lots of volume high up the board in the trebles. We’ve both been playing it. Bob’s playing it much the same as one would a classical guitar, albeit one with unique chordal possibilities. I am still experimenting with the possibilities of the tuning, sometimes going classical, sometimes trying drop-thumb clawhammer, but mostly just exploring the fingerboard and the beautiful sounds that flow forth. I love it.” Vivian
