Handmade Guitars by Bob Gramann

The Banjo


I like plunky open-back banjos.  These sound exactly like I want a banjo to sound.  They are made with a glued-up block Walnut rim with integral hard wood tone rings.  The block rim makes a very solid foundation for the banjo's sound and tuning.  The walnut armrest can be easily detached.  I have used Macassar Ebony for the fingerboard since it is the most stable, long-wearing wood I can obtain for fingerboards.
