Unlike other banjo builders who build their banjos, then send out the metal parts to an engraver to be engraved or the wood parts to a carver to be carved, Bob Flesher does it all. From design to building, to metal engraving, to wood carving to custom engraved inlay, Bob has been practicing these arts for over 35 years. Examples of his work are some of the banjos on the cover pages pages Mel Bay banjo instructional books. Bob designed and customized these instruments such as the Liberty "Cotillion" while an owner and partner of the Liberty Banjo Company. Many times a banjo player will envision the banjo of his dreams or a banjo collector will request a very elaborate banjo for his collection. Working with the creative skills God gave him, Bob can develop such an instrument, a few examples of which are seen on this page. Enjoy the "Art of Bob Flesher's Custom Banjos".
