Why not spread the cost?


“Each banjo as unique as the musician who plays it” is the tagline on the top of banjo-maker Chuck Lee’s website and this beautiful open back banjo is the perfect example of this philosophy. Made with beautiful maple on the neck and 12-inch rim, this banjo features nylon strings, and a 25-½ scale length. This is the perfect combination of new and old. The nylon strings harken back to the early days of the banjo, which was born out of traditional African instruments that used gut strings. This, paired with the modern construction makes for a unique banjo, that would be perfectly suited to modern interpretation of old time folk and mountain music. Nylon strings offer a warmer-sounding alternative to the more typical steel strings used on modern banjos. This banjo is in excellent condition and comes with its OHSC.
