From Bob Gramann: "I like plunky open-back banjos. These sound exactly like I want a banjo to sound. They are made with a glued-up block Walnut rim with integral hard wood tone rings. The block rim makes a very solid foundation for the banjo's sound and tuning. The walnut armrest can be easily detached. I have used Macassar Ebony for the fingerboard (except for the fretless) since it is the most stable, long-wearing wood I can obtain for fingerboards."
The #133 model has the following features:
-Solid 12" walnut block pot with integral hard maple tone ring
-Nice wide neck with 1 and 3/8" nut
-Brass and brass-plated hardware
-Solid mahogany neck
-Hard case (and trademark stuffed animal) included!
