Mountain Banjo

Available with steel or nylgut strings, fretted or fretless!!

The Musicmakers Mountain Banjo is an elegant and simple banjo. It successfully combines the look and feel of a traditional home-built mountain banjo with some modern components.

It uses beautiful solid hardwood for the neck and body. You can choose from cherry, walnut, or mahogany. A rosewood fingerboard and figured walnut peghead veneer are also standard. We use a double action truss rod to ensure the neck is playable for the life of the instrument and planetary tuners to make tuning smooth and easy. The skin tension and neck angle are both fully adjustable. And the lack of external hardware on the body keeps the instrument light-weight (only 5 pounds!) Easy to build and a joy to play!
