This banjo, which we received on consignment from a professional musician, has seen a lot of use. The flange is a chrome replacement, and the resonator sides and rim have been refinished to match the neck, which is of unknown make. The four peghead tuners are gold plated, and the other one is nickel. It has a fiberskin head. The resonator has a lot of finish checking. Having said all that, it is a solid banjo and is being offered at a very attractive price. Click here for pictures
This neat and incredibly light weight electric banjo has a solid body with two hot rails pickups, and a radiused fingerboard. It's perfect for plugging right into a headphone amp or device for practice, and is as feedback resistant as an electric guitar. Like all Nechville banjos, the Comet is made in America.
We sold this mahogany banjo new in 2003 and it has been kept in wonderful condition, with just the the usual fret wear at the first few frets. It is a really nice banjos in all respects!

This banjo has a new Richie Dotson neck with Reno inlay, and Richie also installed one of his new flathead tone rings, and it will hold its own with any banjo. The metal parts are exceptionally nice, with a virtually flat flange. If you've been looking for a prewar Gibson, this just might be the one. Click here for pictures
Tube and plate diamond flange, and 40-hole archtop tone ring. Richie Dotson just made a new copy neck for this mahogany banjo. Note the fancy concentric rings on the resonator. Studio King banjos are quite rare; much more so than Recording Kings. This one is completely original, including the Presto tailpiece, and it still has the original skin head.
