A brief history of this instrument
The Blak Emerald took a total of 5 months to construct, material sourcing was a real problem as only high grade ebony can be used for the main components those being the neck and pot, further more because we wanted a totally unique banjo some of the metalwork was also manufactured in our workshops, the Oettinger style tailpiece for instance was a great challenge and was made by hand piece by piece this alone took over a week !
