More About Me

Hello. I have been building and restoring old instruments for as long as I can remember. Since retiring about 8 years ago, I have more time to do my favorite thing. Putting on a big pot of coffee at 6 AM every morn and then spending the day in my shop.. I put together approximately 8 old style clawhammer banjos per year and I usually have at least one available at any given time. If you are looking for a one of a kind custom made open back banjo, contact me through BHO messages and I will get back to you the same day. Thanks! Bill


Hi. I always love the banjos you make. Do you ever do custom work? Ideally looking for an 11” thinner rim (.5” or so) and 3-3.5” deep, open back. Ideally a Dobson tone ring on rolled brass. There are some other details but this would be the basic idea. Thanks, Tim - tlaubs

Thank you. I should update that "more about me" page. I have slowed down alot and not making nearly as many as I used to. Custom orders makes it seem more like a job with a timeline than a relaxed hobby. Sorry - Billybilt Banjo
