Emily had this custom Nechville Classic banjo built in 2003 by Tom Nechville and his crew. Emily nicknamed the banjo "Gus" after her first son. According to the Banjo Newsletter: The Gus includes a Texas bluebonnet on the peghead, and the state of Texas and a lariat running up and down the compound radiused fingerboard. The Corona Heli-Mount frame houses a 20 hole tone ring and Nechville’s Cyclotronic Ball Bearing system. The banjo also includes a mahogany neck and resonator and a radiused fingerboard.
