An openback with punch! Features a wider neck and a bronze Deering -06- tone ring. This banjo can be played for bluegrass, clawhammer, or a blend called Clawgrass, named after the style created by Mark Johnson. For modern clawhammer style players who enjoy jamming in any style of music this powerful openback banjo can hold it's own with a loud, clear bell like tone normally only found in resonator banjos.
The hardware is black nickel plated and engraved. This banjo also features 24 karat gold accents, a hand carved heel, abalone trim, and ivoroid binding. This is a show piece banjo that is as stunning as the beautiful sound it creates. You can enjoy the tone of the Clawgrass banjos played by Steve Martin, Kevin Nealon and Mark Johnson in their many performances.
