Banjo #273

Brooks Masten is based out of Portland, Oregon and has been making banjos since 1999. He runs a one man operation and does all of the woodworking and most of the metal work on sight. He makes his own rims as well as spins them in Nickel Silver by hand. His custom order form is a unique way to create a personalized banjo. No two Brooks Banjos are exactly the same, but are easily identified by the Indian head penny inlay. Brooks has made over 300 banjos to date.

Shown here is an It has an 11.5" silverspun Curly Maple rim with 16 butterfly shoes. The rim was turned into Nickel Silver by Brooks. The neck is made out of roasted Curly Maple.
