Our USA Custom Shop Artisan Deluxe sings the virtues of maple, with a one-piece curly maple neck, beautiful hand-selected curly maple resonator and classic Recording King 3 ply maple rim.

The beautiful texture of the maple is accentuated by the one-of-a-kind handcrafted Christmas Tree binding on both the neck and resonator.

A historic Bella Voce MOP inlay pattern adorns the neck and peghead. Designer Greg Rich hand-engraved the custom 24K gold-plated hardware for a banjo that's singular in both looks and tone.
