The Avalon Mahogany top tension banjo features a carved mahogany resonator with matching sidewalls.
Our custom shop hand-shaped the one-piece mahogany neck for speed. The American-made nickel-plated top tension hardware includes the hoop, armrest and tension bolts.
We've fitted the 3 ply maple rim to our exclusive Recording King 20 hole flathead tone ring. Greg Rich designed the MOP "Dancing Couple" headstock art which our craftsmen inlaid into the solid ebony peghead overlay and trussrod cover. We've finished all the wood pieces in a thin coat of nitrocellulose lacquer for resonance and historical accuracy.
