Enoch Tradesman 12 Inch Cherry 5-String Nylon String Banjo, 2019

Enoch Tradesman 12 Inch Cherry 5-String Nylon String Banjo, 2019

Here we’re have a brand new Enoch Tradesman 12 5-string open back banjo, built of Cherry and with a Richlite fingerboard. Enoch Banjos are hand built in Kevin Enoch’s shop in Beltsville, Maryland, and are highly respected by the old-time banjo crowd. While the Enoch Tradesman is a simple, plain yet very high quality banjo, many Enoch banjos are custom built with incredible engraved inlay sets.

Dave Mills 5 String Openback Banjo with Frailing Scoop, 2018

Dave Mills 5 String Openback Banjo with Frailing Scoop, 2018

This neatly constructed Dave Mills 5 string openback banjo uses a 12 inch pot with a spun-over Maple rim and Dobson-style tone ring, and a 3-piece Maple neck with an Ebony fingerboard that carries a frailing scoop. The Maple used on the rim and neck has a very convincing Cherry stain – so convincing that even our repair shop staff thought it was cherry from a short distance!     The head uses a traditional ‘paddle’ outline.
