Full-size banjos start at $1,800 ("base price"). The base price for the banjo ukulele is $1,200. The fretless kettle gourd banjo is based on availability, inquire about pricing.
Base prices exclude shipping and case. Hard case is $150. I'm willing to ship internationally on a case-by-case basis; but hey, it's expensive.
