The Brawley Civil War Banjo is patterned after a banjo made by Frank Brawley, Co. G, 6th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry in 1862. The 6th Minnesota fought in the Minnesota Sioux uprising, 1862-1864, and later saw duty along the Mississippi River from St. Louis to New Orleans. Brawley's banjo is currently in the Minnesota Historical Society Museum in St. Paul.
All pegs and parts
are handmade to fit each banjo. Installation
of the skin is easy when you follow the
steps on the included illustrated instructions.
It's as easy as 1-2-3 to finish your banjo kit.
1) Sand the neck and rim smooth.
2) Stain and finish them, your choice of color.
3) Install the skin and strings.
The high quality ebony tuning pegs, all
metal parts, the neck to rim joint, and the
dowel holes in the rim that accept the neck
all fit perfectly. Each kit is actually
a banjo we've made then taken apart so you
can finish it with your choice of traditional
or modern finishes. Staining skill required.
Comes with TKL gig bag with a front pocket, backpack straps, a handle on the back, a velcro-closing handle on the side and a velcro neck strap inside.
Sells for $500.00 without the gig bag - asking $425.00 plus shipping.
Someone should snatch this up quick!
That way they will have it finished by the EBG in June.
I would but I have entered the Waltz contest and hope to become the BHO waltz king using my Bell banjo.
(P.S. Terry sponsored that contest with one of his banjos as a prize)
Good luck to you Joel. Like the name by the way!!
