We are excited to be one of the very few luthiers reviving a unique finishing touch using metals - especially brass, copper and silver - as surface "onlays". These metals can have decorative designs cut out and be stacked for a three dimensional quality. We attach our onlays using rivets or screws. Onlays can be placed on the peghead (front & back), scoop, heel or rim of any banjo.
These are just a few examples of our onlay work.
