Nechville Galaxy Phantom 5-String Banjo w/pickup (used)

Regular price $ 4,000.00

This incredible and innovative banjo made by Nechville was purchased new by its former owner in 2008. They have barely played it, and have decided to pass it on to a new loving owner. We had our senior luthier do a full setup and clean/polish of hardware, and it's now looking and playing almost like-new! Its tone is amazingly loud, yet sweet when you back off.

This is the all-mahogany version of the Galaxy Phantom. A Schatten pickup has been installed, as well as 4 railroad spikes at the A. Bb, B, and C. The banjo features Nechville's tunneled 5th string, 20 hole nickel-plated bronze alloy tone ring, crack-resistant clear coat finish, and 7-12" compound radiused ebony fingerboard for playability and comfort. Heli-mount technology for the perfect head tension, Quick-Cam neck connection (neck is removeable & adjustable), and comfort arm rest. Nut Width is 1 5/16", scale length is 26 3/8". New orders of these from Nechville are at least a 5-month wait.

And don't forget that beautiful planetary M.O.P/abalone inlay! As Nechville's website says, this banjo is "your key to the Multiverse!"

Original deluxe TKL hard case is included, as well as strap, adjustment wrenches, original manual, and some picks.

Shipping is $100 within the continental US.
