About this banjo

The John McEuen Signature model banjo is made of beautiful curly maple stained a golden honey and trimmed in ivoroid and Coral Snake purfling. White binding encircles the peghead where John McEuen’s name is set into the artfully designed floral pattern that gracefully adorns the peghead and ebony fingerboard.  D-Tuners are installed on the 2nd and 3rd Strings. It has a unique look of 24 karat gold and chrome metal parts, accented with premium engraving on the tone ring, armrest and tailpiece. This exquisite banjo has a gold plated Deering -06- tone ring and a slightly deeper resonator for the precise sound John wanted.

Bonuses When You Order From Banjo.com

  • 5th String Railroad Spike Capos – FREE
    We can add these as a free service when you purchase a banjo from us. When you add this banjo to your cart just select that you want the capos. What is this? When you use a standard capo on your banjo fretboard, fretting strings 1 through 4, you’ll need to capo the 5th string separately. The 5th string starts at the 5th fret. If your standard capo is on the 2nd fret, you also need to capo the 5th string two frets higher, at the 7th fret. We recommend installing railroad spike capos on frets 7 and 9 (A and B). We install them on the fretboard just under the 5th string, an idea that was developed and used by Earl Scruggs himself. We use them, and so do most of the professional players we know. When you’re playing, you don’t really notice the spikes because they’re out of the way, but they’re always there when you need them. Simply slide the 5th string under the spike. When you’re done, slide it out.
  • Starter Pack – FREE
    We can send along with your banjo a Starter Pack for free. This includes a strap, DVD, and tuner and picks.
