12fret.com says of this instrument: "An accurate reproduction of the classic banjos from the 1930's made with the same weight, design and features of the originals."

The twenty-hole cast bell bronze tonering in combo with the rock maple rim and tapered sidewall resonator gives that classic pre-war Scruggs sound (the golden era) with excellent response throughout the register, punchy note separation we love for bluegrass and plenty of volume in both bass, midrange and treble. A rich, gutsy, pre-war tone that makes you want to keep pickin' on... and on...

In Deluxe arched-top signature case with double neck cradle. $4560.00 AUD
