I'm building my first banjo soon and was just wondering; is a laminated neck as standard? I want to make the neck from walnut and my instinct is to laminate, but my old Deering Deluxe (1981) neck is built from a single lump of mahogany and it's had no problems with stability or anything. In fact, it's a tightly tuned hot rod! Well, more tightly than my Dad's Ducati anyway...
Any advice you got, give it to me!

I love the smell of napallm in the morning
