Periodically special custom banjos are offered as limited editions. They are inspired by such things as a uniquely figured piece of wood- domestic or exotic, shell materials of unusual color, and most important, an interest in developing a concept or theme unique to the instrument. These banjos happen only by inspiration and are not intended for normal production. At Wildwood building great banjos is a creative tradition –deserving never-ending respect for performance, sound quality, craftsmanship, and beauty. It is a privilege to work with nature’s unique materials –we do it responsibly, and with great joy.
