Custom Nechville Moonshine open back banjo with optional 25-1/2" short scale.
The Nechville Moonshine offers a modern take on the old-time banjo.
This 11" open back banjo is built using the same unique Heli-Mount design as Nechville's resonator banjos, making it a cinch to dial in head tension or replace your head.
In addition the the Heli-Mount head, the Moonshine features Nechville's famous low action and easy playability.
This is the "Standard" Moonshine with minimal dot inlays on the fingerboard.
Includes hardshell case.

This model features an optional 25-1/2" short scale. This is about 3.3% shorter than the standard 26-3/8" scale typically found on this model.
Some players prefer the slightly closer fret spacing and lower string tension offered by a short scale, but the difference is very subtle.
