As an experiment I thought it would be fun to make an electric banjo. Inspired by a stainless steel headed guitar a friend (and former professor) shared with me, I made a cast aluminum head for the banjo. A friend of mine sent me this cigar box sometime ago thinking I might enjoy making a cigar box guitar at some point. The neck is made from a piece of Osage Orange stock given to me.. by you guessed it, a friend. You could say this was a project where I provided the labor but the materials were collected by friends near and far.
