Six new Darkwood banjos on their way this year.

Darkwood-Hand crafted banjos

Two necks close to completion: Hand carved, fretted and scooped. The lower one is black walnut and the top one is sycamore. Both are ready for final finishing

This sycamore was chosen for the neck because it has a beautiful open grain that is slightly spalted, It will have a very characterful look with the final finish

Brass heel plates look good with the ebonised rims planned for these two necks

One of Darkwood's block rims in the process of being turned.

Made from black walnut and topped with rosewood where the rolled brass tone ring will sit.

After it has been turned to the correct thickness and sanded it will be ebonised to give a dark rich colour
