After almost 40 years of supplying the finest banjo parts available for builders, manufacturers and home craftsmen worldwide, the decision was made at Sullivan Banjo, to attempt to create a banjo which would be unsurpassed in quality, beauty, and have the much sought after sound found in many of the early banjos. Clarity and power with a strong booming bass was the goal. Real value in a quality instrument was also a prime consideration.

Every part used in the construction of a Sullivan banjo is selected for perfection. Each step of the manufacturing operation is carefully monitored to insure the instrument you will play and enjoy for many years will still be worthy when you decide to pass it down to a deserving grandchild.

Skilled hands perform delicate tasks, which a machine could never duplicate. There is a degree of love built into each instrument. Care and perfection is the watchword. Each instrument is built as a personal testament to the skilled craftsmen who passed this legacy down.

Note: Our banjos are individually inspected, set up and tuned by the Banjo.com staff in Georgia. We are banjo players, so we set them up the way we want to play them! Each banjo is in tune when we carefully pack it for shipment. Climate conditions and travel will affect the tuning, so it may need to be fine-tuned before playing.
