The Custom 6
The Recording King USA Custom 6 Banjo is a hot-rodded crossover instrument for a player who wants a one-of-a-kind piece of art that delivers a one-of-a-kind sound.
Based on upgraded plans from our Madison 6-string, the Custom 6 is the perfect combination of guitar-style playability with banjo appointments. We've taken a hand-selected maple resonator, and paired it with a tube-and-plate style 2-piece flange and dual coordinator rods. We've kept it guitar player-friendly, with a truss-rod-adjustable maple neck and a full 25.4” dreadnought scale length. The 1-11/16" nut with allows for comfortable banjo picking, but is still narrow enough to fret chords comfortably. The bone nut and maple/ebony bridge help deliver the percussive sound banjo players love.
We've finished it off with a hand-inlaid Recording King peghead design, high-quality Tone Pros Kluson three-on-a-rail tuners, classic nickel-plated hardware and an electrifying candy apple red lacquer finish.
The Custom 6 is a unique instrument for guitar players who want something definitely out of the ordinary, or for banjo players who want an instrument guaranteed to start a conversation.
