Our inventory of Nechville banjos is constantly changing. At the present time we have more than twenty on order. I also keep the three types of tone rings used by Nechville (wood, hybrid, and 20-hole flathead) in the shop, and can easily change whatever is on a banjo, if the customer so desires.

The pot is original and in nice condition. The flange is pulled up as usual, but is very solid. The rim has not been cut, so it has the brass hoop tone ring. Richie Dotson built a new 5-string neck with Wreath inlay, and he said, after playing it, that it was the best sounding style 11 banjo he has ever heard, including his own!
This neat instrument started life as a mandolin banjo. It has a standard Mastertone pot with 40-archtop tone ring, and is in very nice condition. The neck was made by Richie Dotson.
The pot is 100% original except for the head and armrest. According to the previous owner, the 5-string neck was made by Gary Schatti in California. It is in like-new condition. This banjo has a lot of volume and good tone. It comes with a Deering padded gig bag.
Although used, this walnut banjo is in practically like new condition. It has a wooden tone ring, so it is very light. Radiused fingerboard, with just a wist of wear on the first three frets.
1927 Vega Tubaphone banjo; serial number 90949. The pot is 100% original, except for the tailpiece. The neck was made by Bob Flesher, the one-time owner of Liberty Banjo Co. It has beautifully engraved inlays and a carved heel. There is zero fret wear, and was obviously rarely played. If you've been looking for a Tubaphone,
you can't do better than this!
Ode is back! They are being built in Boulder, Colorado by Zen Ogsbury, the son of Ode and Ome founder Chuck Ogsbury. I just received my first one, and I’m quite impressed. The pot has aged brass hardware, with a wood tone ring. The neck is made of North American cherry with EVO gold frets, hand-rubbed finish, and amber tuner knobs. The Buffalo nickel set in the peghead is a neat touch. This one has a 12” pot, and an 11” pot banjo should be arriving soon. A well-padded gig bag is included.
