AP Toman Twintone banjos: part 3

An important point about AP Toman Twintone banjos is that these outstanding instruments are built as a personal venture, not a commercial project.

Thanks to Jonathan Toman for photos and details of the special 'Granada' model now under construction, which will be appearing on the BIB tomorrow. Meanwhile, here are more photos of the three Twintones that have been built so far:
