This is a new page where we’re going to feature the works of some of the visitors to our website.

This neck was made by Brian Johnson of Yellow Springs, Ohio. Brian purchased the fancy peghead and heel inlays from Swanks Shell inlay in Baltimore, MD, but he cut and engraved the rest of the pearl himself. Brian has already made several necks, and is currently building a banjo that uses Osage orange for the fingerboard, peghead, and tone ring.
