No 35 Bloodsucker head Dobson Banjo


This Banjo has a Dobson tone ring that sits on a 1/4" rolled brass hoop which combined with the 3" rim gives it an deep open tone with tons of bass and a sweet decay to the notes. The inlay design is a green man taken from a grave stone in Shebbear, Devon. This type of green man is called a Bloodsucker Head, because of the vegetation sprouting from their facial orifices and the fretboard is inlayed with Mother of pearl leaves.
