For your playing delight... 'Vintage' open-back 5-string banjo constructed from specially selected timbers, hand-crafted to produce a specific sound.

Walnut neck. 25" scale. Macassar ebony over Ironbark fingerboard with spikes at 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th frets. Curved frailing scoop. Ironbark tone ring. Walnut 11" block-rim construction pot with silky oak capping. Bikini tailpiece in stainless steel. Fancy headstock with macassar ebony overlay and pearl 'V' logo. Purple heart bridge.

Fingerstyle 'Vintage' banjos feel very comfortable to play having a slightly shorter neck. This banjo can also be strung with nylon strings.

Macassar ebony is a very hard wood with soft tonings of brown to blonde.
Walnut has a long grain, gives a mellow, mid-range sound and the ironbark tone ring imparts clarity and volume. All woods used in the Vintage models are environmentally friendly.

A beautifully balanced instrument, weight-wise and playing-wise, with perfect intonation - A joy to play! In travel-snug open-back-size hard case, $2290.00 AUD. (Freight and insurance in Australia, approx $90.00)
