A simple banjo neck can take one hundred hours to complete while a more
elaborate neck can take two hundred or more hours to finish. The end result
is a handcrafted, personalized, musical work of art that will last for
Creating a hand crafted banjo starts with selecting high quality boards for their natural grain beauty.
- The boards are ripped, book matched and glued together with various veneers into a neck blank.
- The next step is to cut the basic profile of the neck and install the truss rod for support.
- The fingerboard and peghead overlay are cut, bound and glued to the neck blank.
- The inlay and engraving work is done next.
- The neck is then shaped and the heel is carved.
- Finally, adjustments are made for the pitch of the neck and a dowel installed before being attached
to the pot assembly of the banjo.
