This banjo has the depth of the sound and wonderfully woody projection we love and expect from Chuck Lee with a refreshingly untraditional atheistic. Check out that blue! Per usual with Chuck's instruments the materials and build quality are as good as they come, the curly maple is absolutely gorgeous, and the fit and finish are excellent throughout. The 11" rim and brass tone ring give this banjo plenty of punch and power suitable for a wide variety of music. Priced with hard case.
