Designed for George Grove of the Kingston Trio a mural of inlay of the dinosaur age made of mother of pearl in white, gold and black, coral, turquoise, cactus, abalone, malachite, several kinds of soap-stones, koa, taugua nut, and rosewood are set into the ebony fingerboard. The neck has an adjustable truss-rod and the truss rod cap is cleverly a part of the peghead inlays. It slips under the head of the Tyrannosaurus Rex. When you order a banjo of this caliber the one request we have is no strict time limits. It takes as long as it takes. Patience brings great rewards. The Banjosaurus is an amazing blend of bright highs and deep bass response from the grenadilla tone ring.
"Pop-on Resonator" is fit with felt covered spring steel brackets that allow the resonator to be popped on or removed easily so that you can instantly change the timbre of your tone. It's great for folk musicians who also play bluegrass.
