Don't take my word for it - check out what some happy customers have to say!

~The banjo is incredible. I’ve already posted some stuff about it on Instagram. My brother is a custom craftsman and I showed it to him and he was very impressed. It sounds amazing. I’ve already written one or two song demos with it. Anyway thanks again and great working with ya.  - Michael Bain(Sun June)

Buckeye B100

Handcrafted by Greg Galbreath

B100 Ordering Info


The B100 is the base model Buckeye, however it is far from basic.  I stripped this model down to its essential elements in order to give it a simple, elegant feel with the focus being on the wood and hardware.  It's L-shoes and tailpiece are my own custom designs that are sand cast giving them a soft, organic feel, and then aged to a beautiful dark patina.  It also comes with a Brass Scoop Plate, inspired by Henry Dobson's late 19th century banjos, into which I hand stamp BUCKEYE. 


This banjo has a beautiful well balanced sound and has a warm round tone with a solid low end, but also a nice crisp high end with plenty of projection making it able to perform well in any playing situation - from a solo session on your porch, to fiddle banjo duets, to larger band and jam situations and or even playing for crazed square dances.  The Walnut version will have a slightly mellower tone than the Maple version.


If you would like to order one, just contact me and let me know.  The current wait time for a B100 is in the 8-12 month range.


The detailed specs for this banjo are listed below and are set - no customizations (except the rim size, wood and peghead).  Closeup photos are shown below (although without the scoop plate) and sound clips should be coming soon.
