John McEuen Signature Model


The John McEuen Signature model banjo is made of beautiful curly maple stained a golden honey and trimmed in ivoroid and Coral Snake purfling. White binding encircles the peghead where John McEuen’s name is set into the artfully designed floral pattern that gracefully adorns the peghead and ebony fingerboard.  D-Tuners are installed on the 2nd and 3rd Strings. It has a unique look of 24 karat gold and chrome metal parts, accented with premium engraving on the tone ring, armrest and tailpiece. This exquisite banjo has a gold plated Deering -06- tone ring and a slightly deeper resonator for the precise sound John wanted.
