Fretted Gourd Banjo


This gourd banjo has a smaller diameter gourd which makes for a bright and lively sound. Unique tailpiece design keeps the tension of the strings away from the wall of the gourd: protecting the gourd from unnecessary stresses which can cause loss in volume and deformations in gourd shape over time  while allowing it to vibrate/sound freely.
