The original Boucher banjos were painted with a "Faux grain" technique. The Bell Boucher Relic is a convincing aged example of Boucher's banjo.
The wood, skin, and metal parts have all been distressed and tarnished to make this banjo look like an oldie. Dents, dings, and scratches are
all in the right spots to make this appear well used all these years. Great playability is a given on this Bell Banjo due to the great setup.
