Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Here are photos of my latest original Ashborn Guitar with a tapered fingerboard and my second Ashborn Banjo made by Mike Wesley. They both have the concave style of Ashborn tuner.

The neck profile for the banjo was taken from a cast of the original and was provided by Jim Hartel.

These are great photos .. Thanks a lot .. I love my old Ashborn a ton and yours could be it's sister. I did a clip on You Tube showing my Ashborn giutar restored by David Oakes ..  here is a link :


. Have you seen any of the clips of the Ashborn banjo replica I have lent to me and made by David Oakes here in Connecticut ?? 

Beautiful playing on the Ashborn guitar. Yes, I have seen most of your videos including the David Oakes Ashborn's. He does very good work. Here are Mark and Mike playing a couple of my guitars.


THats just wonderful  . I had seen this clip but I thought they were old Ashborns so thats even more of a compliment .. Thanks for the link .. and making these great guitars .. 

Those are originals I just own them for now.

That makes sense .. I am slow on the uptake .. Thanks for telling me .. Yours Guy
