Americana Banjo Kit


Everything you need to make your own authentic minstrel banjo. Put it together within a day or make a project out of it. Take your time to shape the neck, sand the grain and apply a shiny finish; then play your new banjo proudly.

This kit is made from solid American Walnut and a handmade steam-bent rim. It easily assembles into a piece of handmade art that looks as good as it sounds. The design is based upon a banjo that appeared on a Minstrel sheet music book from 1858 (last image in gallery).
