DIY Banjo Kits available

photo-2

I’ve got a lot of these kits ready to go. Email me at carverbanjos@gmail.com. I accept paypal and cashier checks. They are $65 plus $20 shipping in the US. I will ship internationally at cost.

I have these listed on ebay, but I prefer to sell them directly. There are a lot of fees on ebay. So if you are reading this and want one, don’t hesitate to email me.

Includes everything you need to build your own old-time banjo!
No woodworking experience required!

A simple banjo design that still offers a few extra comforts of higher-end instruments, like the double ogee on the fingerboard that indicates the 5th, 7th and 12th fret positions.
This kit includes everything needed to assemble a fully playable banjo. The only tool required is a hammer to tack on the skin and wood-glue for the neck. The entire process takes about two hours, following detailed instructions provided. Made of hardwood birch plywood and featuring hand-carved walnut tuning pegs, nut and bridge. With a leather tailpiece and goatskin head. This would certainly be a fun weekend project for someone of any level of banjo experience.

This banjo is modeled after the old-time fretless banjo dating back to the pre-Civil War era. It is ideal for the clawhammer banjo player: fretless with a built-in frailing scoop.

Stain, paint or varnish it to your liking, or play it all natural.

You will get:
-hardwood birch neck and pot
-real goatskin
-brass tacks for drumhead
-leather tailpiece
-tuning pegs
-nut and bridge
-2 sets of nylon strings
-detailed assembly instructions both written and illustrated

Dimensions:
