SOLD – (NEW) Chuck Lee Open-back banjo 12″ Lone Star, vintage walnut with aged brass hardware – SOLD

(Just Arrived) (NEW) Our best old-timey open back banjos continue to be the Chuck Lee banjos – this one will be serial # 714 and features the light weight but full, earthy, and authentic pop and “cluck” that comes from Chuck’s unique build style, Dobson-style neck heel, wood integral tone rim and 2-ply bent maple rim. Featuring traditional dowel rod construction, handsome aged brass hardware, No-Knot tailpiece, Pegheads geared tuners, Renaissance head, scalloped nut, ebony-top bridge. The banjo has the straight trailing scoop and Macassar ebony fretboard (1-5/16″ nut, 25-1/2″ scale)


The entire instrument is finished in hand-rubbed satin oil varnish. It is a thing of simple beauty.

Chuck’s banjos have been hard to come by over the last three years. It is great to have some more of Chuck’s fine work on display!
