$1,295
sku: STANDA
This short scale banjo (~24 3/4") works well for either A or standard G tuning. Handcrafted in East Lansing, Michigan. NOTE: Bart now calls this an A-flat scale banjo. A true A-scale banjo has an approx 23" scale. Bart takes just the first fret length off this one in order to use his standard adjustable truss rod.
