The Tree of Life inlay pattern is a beautiful sterling silver vine inlay with abalone flower inlays at the position marker locations and mother of pearl leaf inlays along the rest of the fingerboard. The abalone flowers make finding hand positions easy.

It is an heirloom banjo that will gain in value each year that goes by and an investment you can enjoy every day of your life.
