Tenor Banjo with Semi Finished Resonator and Flanges
Resonator is only stained and flanges will be Gold plated. Also the hardware to hold the resonator in place needs to be installed. I've made this Resonator with solid Birds Eye maple wood and plywood, with Maple Burl side veneer and Walnut bindings.

These are the un plated brass flange plates made by Steve Caddick! Steve is well known for his Tenor banjo playing expertise AND he also makes these wonderful Flanges!
