"GRANADA"
Custom 5 string banjo
2017

It is not Gibson Granada.
When I visited Granada , Spain, last year, I found a lot of granada motif everywhere in the city or buildings.
I was inspired to make this.
It will be a true “ Granada “.

 



Granada fruits and leaves with some Islamic pattern.






Lines were carved.




Mahogany is softer  but its fiber is easy to peel off, so carving knives have to be very sharp.

 





Some leaves are carved to concave. They don’t look flat, now.
