Nechville's Saturn resonator banjo was built with lightness and comfort in mind. It's the perfect instrument for folks who want a professional quality resonator banjo without the extra weight that comes with a metal tone ring.

The Saturn's secret is their wooden "Timber-Tronic" tone ring, which provides great tone at a fraction of the weight.

We're also big fans of the Saturn's sleek design. The matte black Heli-Mount frame and tortoise binding create an entirely unique look that is sure to turn heads at your next jam.

To top it all off,  compound radiused ebony fingerboard and wide frets make for buttery-smooth playability.

Walnut neck and resonator. Includes hardshell case.
