Bob Gramann #137 Openback Banjo

Regular price $ 2,000.00

From Bob Gramann: "I like plunky open-back banjos. These sound exactly like I want a banjo to sound. They are made with block or laminated walnut or cherry with integral hard wood tone rings. The block rim makes a very solid foundation for the banjo's sound and tuning. The armrests can be easily detached."

The #133 model has the following features:
- Made of all North American woods
- 3-ply Black Cherry rim
- Black Cherry neck
- Black Cherry “Armadillo” arm rest
- Black Walnut peghead veneer
- Osage Orange fingerboard
- EVO frets
- Gotoh tuners
- Rolled brass Dobson tone ring
- TKL hard case (and trademark stuffed animal) included!

This banjo was completed by Bob in December 2020 but is new, never-owned.
