Excellent opportunity to purchase a hard to find, custom made, original Jason Romero 12” open back banjo. This amazing work of craftsmanship is in mint condition and was made when Mr. Romero was still in Northern California at his June Apple Workshop. The tone is rich and slightly earthy. Excellent high end, mid-tones and bottom.
I worked with Jason on the Day to Night design with the sun at the peg head, moon at the base and stars between. He went on to use this style for other banjos. This was the first that I know of. He did such a superb job. One of America’s top luthiers. This is serial number 0672. April 2006.
The wood and inlay as follows:
Two piece Tiger Wood neck and J3 peg head
12 inch Tiger Wood rim
Bubinga integral tone ring
Ebony fingerboard, peg head overlay, heel and rim overlays
“Day to Night” inlay design is maple, gold and white Mother of Pearl, silver
Original handmade Romero bridge
Hard oil finish
Ring tail piece
Thinline wood arm rest (the same that Bela Fleck uses)
TKL professional series hard case
