These twin 5-string banjos are built as a matched set. Each has a walnut rim that is 3/8″ thick and 11″ in diameter. One peghead sports a vintage 25-cent coal scrip coin from the historic Wyatt Coal Company of Laing, West Virginia. The other is from the Southern Mining Company of Colmar, KY.
Both banjos have necks shaped from the same stock of American Black Walnut with Ebony fingerboards and pegheads. Each rim is fitted with a brass tone ring for clarity and volume.
