The Ron Block model is another banjo based on a classic pre war, in this case one of Ron’s which he had played for years. This model is also made with a wider fingerboard, at Ron’s request. The banjo is also set up per Ron’s specs.
Both the neck and the resonator are made from flamed maple, and the resonator back is inlaid with two strps of multicolored wood marquetry. The metal parts are engraved with a classic pattern and finished with a heavy gold plating.
White/black/white binding sets off the neck and resonator and the banjo is fitted with a clamshell tailpiece.
