SOLD: 11" Open Back, 3-Ply Maple Rim, Maple Neck

This is a recently completed banjo, 26 3/16 scale and 11” three ply maple pot. 


It has good bass response and I’d describe the overall tone as ‘lively ‘, without being overly bright. It’s got good sustain and projects really well. 


It’s set up with medium strings and a standard 5/8 bridge.


There is a 14 day return policy if you are not completely satisfied. I would just ask that you are very careful with the banjo in that time, only play it at home, pack it carefully and pay return postage.
