This beautiful Midnight Phantom resonator banjo features a stunning burled walnut resonator and curly maple binding throughout.
As part of Nechville’s “Phantom” series of banjos, the Midnight Phantom combines a number of innovative modern features with a traditional banjo design.
The maple rim is equipped with Nechville’s Cyclotronic tone ring system, which mounts the tone ring on a series of 80 ball bearings. This setup provides increased resonance and easier adjustment of the head tension.
A compound radius fingerboard with wide frets gives the Phantom an almost electric guitar-like level of playability.
The Phantom Midnight’s walnut neck features a tunneled fifth string, which keeps all tuning machines on the headstock and creates a more streamlined neck.
Weighs 10.74 lbs. Includes hardshell case.
