This is the 5th banjo I've built, and it's my first open back. It's built with a hard maple neck, rosewood fretboard, 20s style 1 headstock, dot inlays, a hard maple block rim, and a 11" brass hoop.

I also installed a Fiberskyn head on it, to give it a more old time look and sound.

Ignore my bad playing in the video, I'm not a clawhammer player and that's my feeble attempt at it.

It looks and sounds good. And good luck on this endeavor, Hunter.

Looks beautiful. Perfect for Uncle Dave Macon style of playing.

Excellent work.
