Nechville Zeus Banjo

As you pick up the Zeus, you’ll realize why Tom Nechville named this banjo after the king of gods. Players really seem to love the lighter weight of this banjo, as well as its smooth-feeling neck profile, radiused fingerboard and avante garde peghead profile. The beveled wooden armrest feels smooth on your forearm, the neck shape makes chording easier, providing clean, distinct and full bodied musical notes. You hear a woody, penetrating clarity with none of the sonic interference that is ever present in other traditional banjos.

Nechville Atlas Banjo

The Nechville Atlas is hybrid banjo with a unique pot and Nechvilles patent pending adjustable neck design. The Walnut block-rim construction and wooden flange give this banjo a earthy appearance and smooth ergonomic feel. The Nechville fraling thumb scoop allows players to double thumb in that sweet spot without losing the top frets common with a typical scoop. The Cocobolo tone ring has a similar mass to a light weight metal tone ring providing similar sustain with a much warmer timbre. This instrument has the full fat sound of a 12″ pot with added clarity providing great depth, resonance and sustain. The Saturn and Stars inlay and hand rubbed oil finish complete this great looking and sounding banjo!
