Charlie Cushman and Kel Kroydon Banjo

Charlie Cushman and Kel KroydonAmerican Made Banjo Company has announced that their first new Kel Kroydon banjo for 2007 will be an artist model for celebrated Nashville banjo picker Charlie Cushman, built to his custom specifications.

This new Cushman model will be a mahogany banjo, fitted with AMB’s Dannick tone ring, and featuring an ebony fingerboard with their Kel Kroydon Style 10 inlay, and the Style 10 resonator overlay. Charlie will set up each of these banjos himself, and sign them before they are shipped.

They will be built by Robin Smith of Heartland Banjo & Guitar.

No pictures of the Cushman model yet on the Kel Kroydon site, but they will surely show up there before long.
