Denny Openback Banjo, Rhea, 12" Rim, Cherry with Wood Tone Ring

sku: AD12-RHEA
This simply-styled openback banjo features a wooden tone ring and is bright and responsive. Andy Denny uses North American hardwoods (locally grown when possible) for the neck and rim, US-made hardware, and he makes his own tension hoops. He names each banjo -- Rhea is one of a kind   More Details...
