LeVan Banjos are made in the USA from sustainable, non endangered materials.

The LeVan New Vintage™ is a limited production banjo  with many features of our more expensive custom instruments, but at a more affordable price. 

This is a result of several years of planning, design development and experimentation backed by 50 years of banjo building and design experience.

Inspired by the great vintage instruments of the late 1800s and early 1900s, the New Vintage is a premier openback for folk, frailing and clawhammer.

I will make a limited number of these each year as time permits, and while they will follow a fairly standard design,

each one will be different in some way so that each one is unique in it’s own right.
