The 24 Fret John Hartford model – a new sound in a full bodied banjo that gives you two full scales up the fingerboard. This Hartford has a big round tone that is full bodied with great bass and sweet highs. With the -06- tone ring and 24 frets it has a more distinct bell like ring to it, with the Grenadillo tone ring it has a more woody ringing tone.

Both choices of tone ring give that distinct round and fruity John Hartford style of sound.

Strings

Tuned:

g,D,G,B,D in standard G tuning Can easily be tuned open E tuning. This is often what John Hartford did!

Tone:

This Hartford has a big round tone that is full bodied with great bass and sweet highs. With the Deering -06- tone ring balances off the tone with some more brightness, because this banjo, with the longer scale length has to have the bridge set more in the center of the head thus producing a darker tone. The brighter -06- tone ring balances it.

Dimensions:

  • Neck Width at the Nut 1 1/4″
  • Scale Length Nut to Bridge 28 1/4″
  • Resonator Diameter 13 7/8″
  • Rim Diameter 11″
  • Overall Instrument Length 38″
  • Weight Approximately 12 lbs with the Deering -06- bell bronze tone ring, flange and resonator
