Wildwood Troubador Black Walnut Banjo

Wildwood Troubador Black  Walnut Banjo

Here we have a slightly more dressed up Wildwood Troubador frailing banjo with binding and wood purfling on both neck and rim as well as some very tastefully executed abalone inlay work on the fingerboard and peghead. The Troubador is a professional level instrument in every regard. The wood selection is top notch as is the craftsmanship and attention to detail with regards to fit and finish. The tone projects without being harsh or losing the ‘old time’ clawhammer sound.
