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.
