I'm excited to finally be able to offer three Standard Model Buckeyes!  I've stripped them down to what I consider a beautifully simple and elegant design, inspired in part from the early minstrel banjos of James Ashborn.  I've designed the three models to each have a slightly different look and tone, but also to hold together as a "family" with a similar overall feel.  A more detailed rundown of their specs, limited customizations and pricing is on the Standard Models page...just click on one of the banjo photos below or use the menu at the top of the page.​

Check out Nathan Bowles on Buckeye #101 playing Burnt Ends Rag.  I think this was the first slot head I ever made and it was the inspiration for the S100.
