Art Deco Banjo Uke (1 of 4)
Tommy just finished the first of a set of four identical Art Deco model banjo ukes. These ukes feature a new peghead design, loosely based on the Chrysler building architecture. Fingerboard, peghead overlay and all inlays are of beautiful polished pearloid material. This uke has a concert scale length of just under 15".

This pre-war pot started life as a Washburn banjo-madolin. A beautiful birdseye maple rim with 22 original hooks and shoes, on which we have installed a new fiberskin head. The 5-string conversion neck was made by Tommy George in 1992, so this is an old one that has come home to us. The neck is crafted of birdseye maple with a black center stripe, ebony fingerboard with abalone inlays and ivoiroid binding. New bridge and no-knot tailpiece, professionally setup and ready to play.
Price: $900 (no case)
Premium George Longneck!
This is a top-shelf custom creation by Tommy George, and it won't be here long! Built in 2009 on spec, it was played by Randall Morton of Devil Train for two years while we tweaked it up and got it just right. This banjo is made of premium dark-stained curly maple, with a wenge fingerboard, custom inlay pattern and a gorgeous fluer-de-lis resonator.
Price: $1,200 (includes hard shell case)
Fender Open Back
This is an early example of the Fender import line. It sports diamond inlays and a bronze hoop tone rings. We have refinished the neck and installed a new head. This banjo is professionally setup and ready to play. A great starter banjo, and you can't beat the price.
