Description

This is an absolutely breathtaking banjo from luthier, Chuck Lee. It's got the resonance and projection his instruments are known for, with that inimitable combination of warmth and "cluck" for single note melodies. Gorgeously figured 'Ambrosia' curly maple construction and a tea-stained skin head give this instrument an aesthetic cohesion all its own. Never one to rest on his laurels, Chuck has taken his familiar mermaid inlay to the next level on this instrument (check out the photos and you'll see what we mean). A wonderful sounding, visually arresting banjo! Priced with hardshell case.
