Romero Banjos are one of the top boutique banjo makers around, and many of their instruments are more like words of art, with fantastic looking carvings, binding, and inlay.
In addition Jason and Pharis are very fine musicians and have put out a few cds. I recently picked up their latest, Passing Glimpse. Its just the two of them on acoustic and national guitars, plus some banjo. The album is mostly songs along with a few instrumental numbers. The sound quality is great and the musicianship is wonderful.
As you probably guessed I am a big fan of handmade instruments, and figured some folks would enjoy this video.
