Handcrafted in Maryland by acclaimed banjo builder and folk historian George Wunderlich, former Executive Director of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine, this rare and resonant 12" Boucher-style 5-string fretless banjo is actually built from cherry and walnut felled following the Battle of Antietam, in Sharpsburg, MD— complete with blemishes and burns from bullet impacts. A silky and familiar walnut neck and traditionally bent cherry pot pair perfectly for a remarkably warm, balanced, saturated tone, while a skin head and nylon strings provide exactly the rounded, crisp response we're looking for in a Boucher-style banjo. With a well-travelled fitted flight case and McIntyre transducer pickup included, this Wunder is more than ready for the road ahead.  

This 1997 Wunder Banjo USA George Wunderlich 12" Boucher-style Fretless Banjo is in Very Good condition, with very light wear consistent with age and appropriate professional use, including a few small, smooth indentations, and a missing cap for one planetary tuner (pictured). Includes McIntylre transducer pickup w/1/4" jack (pictured) and Calton flight case. 

All instruments from the Old Town School Music Store are professionally inspected and set-up before shipping, and directly support the missions, programs, and continued growth of the Old Town School of Folk Music.
