Since 1973, Wildwood Banjo Co. has been quietly building fine Traditional & Bluegrass banjos in Arcata, California. In spring of 2008, the shop was relocated to Bend, Oregon and continues the tradition of building great banjos. Wildwood Banjos are hand made from the finest figured maples, walnuts, and exotic hardwoods available. From the traditional simplicity of the MINSTREL to the ornate design of the SOLOIST, we offer a well balanced range of banjos in styles for the traditional frailing and clawhammer style players, and classic powerful bluegrass banjos for 3 finger pickers. The blend of old world craftsmanship and modern technology helps produce banjos of unequalled quality.
