Slim Jim Banjos is a small UK based company based in the heart of Hampshire started in 2014, run by Jim Heasell.
Jim has always been a craftsman, having it in his blood passed from his great-grandfather, a cabinet maker and following into his father’s footsteps into yacht and boat building.
Jim took up playing the banjo a few years ago and straight away was hooked and started about thinking on making his own banjo, after being inspired by such makers as Jason Romero, Mac Traynham and Chuck Lee, to name but a few.
