Cigarbox Banjo

This is about as small as I can feasibly make instruments. This is a cigarbox banjo. The fretboard is maple, and the neck and saddle are buckeye burl. I might opt for a bone nut on this one eventually to try to get a bit more sound out of it. This banjo measures only 22 inches long. Oh! And it’s actually tuned a full octave above a full scale banjo.
