This banjo was a joy and wonderful challenge to design and make. It was a commission from a person that wanted to let someone else know how much they are valued. I could work on projects like that all day. From what I have learned of the benefactor of this banjo, he is a selfless father and mentor. Good people are a good thing…a good father…that is something to celebrate.
