S/N: N/A, built during June 2015 at the Wildwood shop in Bend, Oregon.
The Wildwood Heirloom traditional open-back banjo is handmade by master luthier Mark Platin in Bend, Oregon, and features a Tubaphone style tone ring and engraved vintage theme inlays.

The Wildwood Heirloom pot is built around Wildwood’s turned rock-maple block rim, fitted with a brass Tubaphone replica tone ring and Waverly tailpiece. This banjo also has the historic Vega banjo “bracket band” upgrade.

The neck is AAA curly maple with ebony fingerboard and peg head overlay. Neck and rim binding is a blend of Ivoroid binding and wood purfling.

The fretboard and peghead features engraved vintage-style mother of pearl inlays done in the tradition of the historic Fairbanks banjos.

Built in June of 2015, this example of the Wildwood Heirloom appears to be unplayed and is in as-new condition and comes with original hardshell case.
