SOLD!!! Nechville Midnight Phantom Custom 5 String Banjo


Instrument Categories: ,

The Nechville Midnight Phantom Custom 5-string banjo offers all of the quality and technical advances of Tom Nechville’s designs, with subtle decoration.

Built with a 3-ply Maple rim, Curly Maple for the neck and resonator and ebony for the fingerboard, the Midnight Phantom Custom also uses the Heli-Mount system, Cyclotronic head system and Timber-Tronic wood Tone-Ring.

These design choices add another advantage – significantly reduced weight.   This banjo weighs less than an average Gibson Les Paul!

Other standard Nechville features include the tunneled 5th string and compound radius fingerboard, 7 inch radius at the nut to 12 inch at the body.

The finish used on the Nechville Midnight Phantom Custom is a walnut tinted clear gloss with subtle shading that really brings out the figuring of the wood.   The tuners are 14:1 conventional sealed models and work very smoothly.  Nechville also uses a stainless steel double-action truss rod, so it’s much easier to keep these instruments in top playing form.   A compensated bridge and the  Nechville ‘Comfort Armrest’ are factory stock.

The Nechville Midnight Phantom Custom is sold with its original hard shell case.

More From The Builder On The Nechville Midnight Phantom Custom 5 string banjo:

“A clean look, a clean sound and a modern streamlined design. 21st century engineering collides with the 5 string banjo to make a banjo that is ergonomic, sounds brilliant, and (practically) plays itself. Contemporary style and innovation, all in one banjo.
