Seeders Custom 11" (2015)

Financing with Affirm


Highly sought-after pre-owned banjo from Vermont-based luthier, Will Seeders! If you follow our website, you know how quickly Will's banjos tend to sell; and they hardly ever become available on the secondary market. This 2015 custom (they're all custom, really) is, essentially, an 11" tubaphone in birdseye maple fitted with a John Balch skin head (though the rim features some very cool construction techniques -- you can read more about it on Will's website if you're in the mood to do a deep dive). This banjo is in mint condition, and priced with its original hard case. It likely goes without saying, but if you're a fan of the Grateful Dead, this is the banjo for you!
