Description

Our latest banjo from Weaverville native Bob Anderson is a gorgeous example of vintage tone with modern feel. Bob pulled a vintage Tubaphone pot from his extensive collection and paired it with a fresh Maple neck he carved with a smooth V profile and dyed a dark, cherry red. Snail inlays along the fretboard are hand etched in painstaking detail by Bob, and you’ll find an intricate star inlaid into the headstock with the same level of precision. 5 Star tuners, Guardian hardshell case, and a fresh head with Ebony-and-Maple bridge dialed in for an easy playing setup—what more could you ask for?
