“I knew I wanted a radiused fingerboard. Having tried Noam Pikelny’s banjo with 24 frets (an extra two frets coming out over the fingerboard), I requested the same. I had always desired a resonator made of quilted maple... and with the addition of gold plating, a beautifully engraved black nickel stretcher band, Pāua Shell abalone binding on the neck and resonator, spectacular art nouveau inlays made of DichroLam... my dream banjo has now became a reality.” - Tony Trischka
