Ordering a Custom Mercier Banjo


Mercier Banjos may be commissioned through me directly or from The 12th Fret in Toronto or Menzies Instruments. I require a 20 percent deposit to bind any contract and to cover my material expenses. There are no 'off-the-shelf' parts on my instruments and I do not offer my hardware for sale to other makers. I do not use CNC to speed up production. My instruments are entirely handmade and highly functional sculptures therefore there are no two alike.

My current starting price is $2000 CAD for a basic fretless and goes up from there depending on the nature of the request.

The current wait time of six months could be expected.

I offer a lifetime warrantee to the original owner.
