This floor model Nechville banjo has been marked down from its regular price of $4,750. It's still in mint, like-new condition but does not include the factory warranty.

The Nechville Photon resonator banjo takes Nechville's signature Phantom design and adds a few extra features:

  • Nickel plated frame
  • Quilted mahogany resonator
  • Macassar ebony fingerboard
  • 5th string fret roller
  • Arrows and dots inlay
  • White binding

Like the Phantom, the Photon utilized Nechville's proprietary Heli-Mount frame to allow for quick , easy head changes and tension adjustments. 

Includes hardshell case.
