This section includes photographs of examples of custom banjos parts that have been engraved and carved by Ron Raymer. They are not intended to be designs to choose from.
Ron does not build instruments, but rather is a service to luthiers. For over 30 years he has designed and engraved patterns, carved heels, peg heads and resonators for scores of instruments. He has duplicated the work done on vintage instruments and custom designed many according to the customer’s request.
He is happy to work with luthiers on custom instruments or help individual musicians personalize their instruments. Each request must be discussed to establish the time and cost involved.
