Grafton "Gem" banjos have proved to be very popular with 5-string players (both bluegrass & old-time) so we thought that a short-scale resonator tenor version might be a good idea as well. Here it is - a great little model that has lots of good features at a very affordable price
This is the specification for the "Gem" short-scale tenor model:- 11" x ½" mahogany rim with 24 brackets and a brass tone ring; 17 fret truss-rodded neck with edge binding and hand-dressed fretting; 2-point neck attachment with twin co-ordinator rods for extra stability; nice quality die-cast sealed unit guitar-style tuners
It has a solid armrest and a good quality cast "New Kerschner" tailpiece; easily removeable resonator; top grade strings & bridge; expertly set-up for optimum playability - and plain but very acceptable finish & cosmetics
FREE with this banjo: 2 spare sets of strings, 4 plectrums and a fitted heavy-duty banjo strap
All this adds up to a great entry-level banjo ideal for the beginner - for sound, playability and stability, nothing else in this price bracket comes close ....
These banjos are built one at a time in our own UK workshops from imported parts. Get a great sounding banjo with all the design & construction quality that you really need to get started on banjo - but at much the same price as many other brands that have few (or none) of these features.
