The Nechville Atlas is a hybrid banjo with a unique pot and Nechville’s 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!

The Nechville Atlas is available in two models- Standard and Deluxe. The Deluxe model adds a compound radius fingerboard, and a hard shell case; the Standard is shipped with a gig bag. We’ve shown pricing for the Deluxe model below; the Standard runs around $500 less.
