Why not spread the cost?


Luthier Chuck Lee builds gorgeous open-back banjos in his Ovilla, Texas workshop. These instruments give a nod to the past while being firmly rooted in the present. This example features a 12 inch Maple rim, as well as a Tubaphone tone ring. This combination makes for a warm, punchy tone, that’s 3-dimensional in quality. This banjo is wonderfully responsive. When tuned to double C tuning, a popular choice for old-time players, the banjo has a sparkle in the highs and deeply resonant lows. This banjo would be perfect for recording and would sound excellent on the stage through a quality microphone. This banjo is in excellent condition and comes in its OHSC
