The Nechville Classic resonator banjo merges the look of a traditional 5-string resonator banjo with Nechville’s proprietary design features.

Nechville’s Heli-Mount frame allows the head to be tightened quickly and with more consistency than the traditional hook and nut system. The “Cyclotronic” rolling rim pot system boosts resonance and further eases the adjustment process.

A compound radius ebony fingerboard with extra-wide frets provide amazing playability and  fret life.

Beautiful flame maple resonator and neck.

In our opinion, Nechville banjos have a warmer and somewhat mellower tone than traditional resonator banjos, but they still produce plenty of power when you dig in.
