Fretted Hand Drum Banjo


Though I created this banjo as a commission, I'm glad to still own it. The gentleman who asked me to make it really liked my hand drum fretless banjo but he wanted it fretted. He also didn't want fiddle pegs, but geared tuners. So I went about to make this banjo. It had a mahagony neck, poplar fretboard, walnut bridge and maple nut. Below is a video explanation and poor demonstration. There are also a few photos below the video
