About speed-necks:

USA makers such as Yates, Huber and Osborne will supply a brand new prestige banjo with a speed-neck for $500 extra. The banjo is laquered as usual then the neck is hand-rubbed back to a silky finish. The grain is protected by applications of Carnauba wax (about $10 per tub). The wax is easily re-applied as part of regular maintenance. My Osborne Chief has a speed-neck and I re-apply the wax about every 3 months. The advantage of a speed-neck is that the chord hand has an almost frictionless surface to get you up and down the neck with greater speed and no drag factor - smoother slides. Carnauba wax repels dirt, scratches, and moisture. When you've played a speed-neck you won't want to go back to ordinary!
