Le Van 'hobo' banjo fingerboard 

Posted 1/25/2013 12:13:33 PM

The inlays are hobo symbols and are designed to have a hand-drawn, informal look (like chalk against a wall); the material is speckled Corian to give a textured feel. The fingerboard is texas ebony - it's nicely grained.

I love these inlays. I have had an affinity for "hobo" themes ever since long ago reading "Waiting For Nothing" by Tom Kromer, an extremely powerful account of life as a homeless "stiff" during America's Great Depression in the 1930s. It remains my favorite book of all time.

You've got a very special banjo there!
