NECHVILLE ATLAS OPENBACK BANJO & GIGBAG, 12" RIM

NECHVILLE ATLAS OPENBACK BANJO & GIGBAG, 12" RIM
Walnut neck with ebony fretboard on a 12" diameter walnut block-style rim with a cocobolo tone ring. A wooden flange on the rim takes the place of bracket shoes. Nechville logo in peghead, standard scale (approx 26-3/8"), saturn and star position inlays. Top edge of fretboard is scooped above 16th fret for good thumb access while leaving all frets available for up the neck play. Enterprise compensated bridge, straight-pulling Nechville tailpiece, Renaissance head, planetary gears, nickel hardware, Nechville comfort bevel wooden armrest. Heavy duty TKL gigbag with thick padding, zippered accessory pocket. A joint venture with Wayne Sagmoen who makes the pot. Nechville provides the neck and innovative neck attachment. Loosen the neck with an allen wrench to change the action height or remove it completely for travel. Reattaching it takes just a few minutes. Light weight (about 5.6 lbs). Sounds great!
