Description Specs Media Why Teachers Like Us

Blonde maple neck with engraved hardwood inlays with Zombie killing themes.  The maple resonator is finished to look blood splattered and worn.  The resonator flange has teeth around the outer edge like a circular saw blade with Zombie killing images cut into the flat surface of the flange.  The three ply violin maple rim is finished with the dark reddish finish.  The metal parts are finished in both nickel plating and a hard blood red color. 

The finish on each and every Zombie banjo resonator is unique in an effort to present as playful an image as possible. Our luthiers are taking great joy in creating images that can include dirt, boot prints, face prints, hand prints, chain marks, raised surfaces simulating blood clots, etc. Know that this is all deliberate and done with you in mind. Enjoy knowing that your banjo is a one-of-a-kind creation!
