The fit and finish of these banjos rivals the finest (and costliest) handcrafted instruments on the market and the tone is responsive, strong, musical, and versatile. The playability is unmatched. We simply cannot get enough of them. It is very exciting for us to find a builder of Rob’s enormous skill so early in his career!
If you saw our most recent highly customized Midnight Moon and Ziricote models, you’ll appreciate this LIMITED EDITION Blonde Autumn 5 string banjo from Mr. Bishline!
What is it? Thanks for asking. It’s a Bishline custom 5-string banjo with the new Bishline – Blaylock pot assembly (including the Blaylock NEW ERA tone ring) gold plated and copper-veined powder coated hardware, Gotoh tuners with amber knobs and FLAMED MAHOGANY armrest and “special reserve” old growth maple rim! Look at the subtle wood marquetry, the M.O.P. outlined leaves, look at the copper and gold hardware, look at the mahogany binding. Tone, snap, snarl, growl, tubby, throaty, LOUD! The new Blaylock tone ring is showing up in many of the finest custom banjos including “The Chief” and banjos by the highly regarded Frank Neat. The tone is unsurpassed.
It is another headturning, eye-catching, jaw-droppingly beautiful and collectible custom Bishline instrument. Worthy of the finest player, deserving of a spot in the finest banjo collection.
Thanks to Torrance Photography for some of the nicer photos. And to Rob Bishline for the video! Nice job!
