Nechville Atlas Standard openback banjo with 12" rim. This is a great no-frills old time banjo that offers all of Nechville's ingenuity and craftsmanship in a more budget-friendly package.

The 12" Atlas offers a bit more warmth and low end than the 11" Atlas.

This model has an optional 25.5" short scale. Walnut rim and neck. Flat ebony fingerboard.

Includes heavy-duty gig bag.

Nechville's Description:

Take the weight of the world off your shoulders. The Atlas is ultra-light (around six pounds), sounds great and is a joy to play. Its design was a Nechville-Sagmoen collaboration and echoes the Ashborn Banjos of 1860. Modern Nechville innovations make the Atlas the most advanced traditional openback to date.
