The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Wildwood Exotic Wood Series Frailing Banjo


Instrument Categories: ,

The Wildwood Exotic Wood Series Frailing banjo is the latest model from Mark Platen at  Wildwood using all non-endangered woods throughout and an oil rubbed, open pore finish.

This spectacular open-back instrument features a solid maple, lathe-turned pot fitted with a dense African Wenge-wood tone-ring.

The neck is a mix of African Bubinga & Wenge with a Maple center strip and an ebony fretboard with Clawhammer scoop. 

The bindings are curly maple and all finished in an open-pore, hand-rubbed Tung Oil and wax finish.

The Wenge tone ring offers a much lighter weight and adds considerable warmth to the tone, while maintaining sustain and clarity.

A hardshell, case is included.
