The Naked banjo Series are Gourdies made primarily of one wood. In this case, Curly Flame maple is used throughout the main part of the banjo …the  neck, fretboard, or fingerboard . I try to pick the best grains and color for these banjos to result in a very striking instrument. This piece is particularly nice.
