Ian Pattison 12" Folkway Custom

We commissioned a series of Folkway Custom 5 string banjos from Ian Pattison, with simplified appointments, wooden tone-rims, renaissance heads, and an absence of CITES-listed woods to allow for simpler international shipping. This 12” version is the first we’ve received, and is in fact Pattison’s first 12” instrument. It’s a lovely frailer, with thumb-scoop, light weight build, great looks, and a warm and responsive 12” tone.

Maple neck and rim, dual coordinator rods, chromed hardware, and no-knot tailpiece.Gun-oil finish, Gotoh tuning machines, and bone nut. Entirely hand-made in Guelph, Ontario.
