Americana Banjo Kit


*This kit is currently on back order, I will begin shipping kits again during the first week of May, in the order that they are received.
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 walnut 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).
