Buying and ordering a Hutchings banjo.

A small number of “Sam’s Choice” banjos are built each year that are available to buy at Justecordes – click the link to see what they have in stock at the moment…

The list for 2025 builds will open on August 1st 2024 for production in 2025.

Take a look through my portfolio for inspiration and use the calculator to estimate the cost of a Hutchings banjo (a fixed quote will be possible at the time of ordering) …  Many more options are available as well as full custom builds – I’m happy to work with the customer on their project, so feel free to contact me to get started.
