It was a pleasure to build another banjo for my friend, Rainier, over in France.
The inlay, peghead shape and 'boat' style heel are all based around an old Cole Eclipse banjo, the heel shape is something I've been wanting to try for quite a while. Turned out to be a lovely little banjo, with a super sweet tone.
