Wildwood Banjos was a small manufacturer of high-end banjos located in Bend, Oregon that started in Arcata, California. The company was founded by Mark Platin in 1972 and the product line included several models of both resonator and open-back banjos. After building well over 6000 banjo's, Platin retired in 2018.
This open back 5 string banjo from the 1980's is in very good condition and looks absolutely stunning! It's not just the 'Tree of Life' inlay on the ebony fretboard; the rim has an ivoroid binding and wooden purfling that also runs along the flame maple neck. It produces plenty of volume and has a crisp and clear tone.
Comes in a hardshell case with TFOA passport.
