Here is the rare opportunity to own perhaps the finest Woodmansee banjo in existence. Bob Woodmansee hand-built it as a top-of-the-line Sunrise Deluxe No. 4 model for his best friend, Bob Bowermaster in 1982. After Bowermaster’s death, the family presented the banjo to Chris Archer who has used it exclusively in his concerts for 20 years.
Made from the highest grade American walnut, and with engraved 18 carat gold plated metal parts, this banjo is an outstanding custom instrument. It has a dead-straight neck with only minor fret wear and it plays and sounds great.
