Carvings for OME Banjos

Banjo resonator carved

During the late 1980s I carved for Ome Banjos in Boulder Colorado, decorating some of their top of the line models. It's one of the few instances when I actually made money as an artist.
Banjo Neck carving
Banjo peg head carving
Each of the sets I carved consisted of the resonator, the heel of the neck, and the back of the peg head. These models are still available today.
