A new model of higher grade entry-level/intermediate plectrum banjo from Saga. It has a heavy 11” cast aluminium alloy rim with integral arch-top tone ring & heavy nickel-plated metalwork - 24 brackets, a heavy armrest and a Waverley tailpiece. The plating is excellent. Fitted with a Remo Fibreskyn head. The new and more attractive truss rodded mahogany neck is quite slim with a rosewood fingerboard and pearl dot position markers. Two-point neck fixing with twin co-ordinator rods for extra stability. The scale length is 26.5" with 22 frets. Modern banjo fretting, very nicely done & hand-dressed for an excellent playing surface. The action is set-up low but is adjustable as required. Fitted with good quality planetary tuners. Standard cream plastic bound convex “Gibson” style resonator with 2-piece flange and 4-point fixings. The neck is finished in clear gloss lacquer which matches the resonator nicely - the finish is good. Owing to the much heavier metalwork and better grade body (with an integral arch-top tone ring), it has a much better tone than the basic aluminium-bodied model and is suitable for DGBE or CGBD Plectrum tuning.
FREE with this banjo: fitted gigbag, chromatic tuner, tutorial chord book, 2 spare sets of strings, 4 plectrums and a fitted banjo strap.
