Nechville Saturn resonator banjo with custom quilted mahogany resonator and optional hard case upgrade.
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 traditional metal tone ring.
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, a compound radiused ebony fingerboard and wide frets make for buttery-smooth playability.
Like all Nechville banjos, the Saturn comes equipped with their patented Heli-Mount system for even head tension and quick, simple adjustments.
Tonally, the Saturn is a bit more warm and woody than a traditional tone ring banjo, but it still has plenty of power, clarity, and projection.
This banjo has been upgraded to a Superior brand hardshell case instead of the standard gig bag.
