Open-Back Banjo

Find a Dealer

The Starlight Series open-back banjos have all the specs you expect in an old-time banjo – multi-ply rim, 16 brackets for precise head-tensioning, and a 26-1/4” scale – all delivering the traditional banjo “snap” today's players want. Combine those classic features with the Starlight Series' stunning custom colors, and you have banjos unlike anything the folk world has ever seen. Choose from three unique color combinations:

  • Sky: a light blue with white binding, reminiscent of a cloudless day
  • Midnight: a deep grey with ivory binding, like a foggy Blueridge mountain morning
  • Sunbeam: a beautiful pale yellow with tortoise binding, like the last moments of an Appalachian sunset

Recording King Starlight Banjos let players express themselves at first glance with a banjo that's as unique as their playing.
