Menzies Akonting

  • New Condition
  • No Case


Handmade by banjo-maker Jeff Menzies, this is a modern interpretation of the African akonting, which later evolved into the modern banjo. This example features a blue-mahoe neck with two melody strings, and one shorter drone string. The skin head is affixed to the calabash resonator gourd with tacks, and has an X shaped sound hole on the driver's side.
