RB36 & RB38
Custom orders are closed for 2022
I am no longer taking custom orders at this time.
From the Builder:
I build on average 5-7 banjos a year.
3-4 of those banjos will be Booker models.
I also will feature Artisan *models designed by me and will be 'completely custom' builds.
All builds will be for sale.
