Whenever we receive a new Chuck Lee banjo we're reminded of just how special his instruments are. We're constantly using the word "depth" to describe Chuck's banjos and there's a reason for that: you'd be hard pressed to find any other banjo out there with the kind of low end presence found in this Ovilla. Its incredibly lightweight feel belies it's huge sound, which is warm and earthy with tons of resonance. The gorgeously spalted "Ambrosia" Curly Maple neck & rim and "Lady in Hat" inlay vault this one to the top of the looks department (and we haven't even talked about that tea-stained head!). Be forewarned, you may find it hard to put this banjo down - and to stop staring at it if you do. Priced with hard case.
