SORRY Y'ALL THIS BANJO SOLD but she is making others. Just let me know if you are interested.
My friend Anne Hartman makes musical instruments & she just finished this beautiful fretless banjo, here is some info:
This handmade banjo built by Anne Hartman right here in Knoxville in 2014. It's fretless, with an 11" rim, and a barnswallow inlay in the frailing scoop. The neck and rim are made from hard maple (with a little curl to it), the fingerboard and trim are ebony. The hardware is all raw brass, which will develop a patina with time. It's got a brass hoop tone-ring, a Fiberskyn head, and a handmade bridge as well. Like most of Anne's instruments, the finish is French polished shellac. The tone is clear, with lots of volume and a good "cluck!" It's ready for some all-night tune sessions. $1900 includes a new Superior hardshell case. If you are in Knoxville you can arrange to look at it at the Pioneer House store.
