About this banjo
The Morgan Monroe MB-9 Duelington Deluxe is our Top of the Line banjo. The Duelington combines aesthetic beauty with precision craftsmanship for a world class banjo that is truly a pleasure to see, hear and own. From the mother of pearl inlay on a dark ebony fingerboard to the gorgeous flamed resonator, this instrument really stands out from the crowd. A 3-ply maple rim and bell brass tone ring brings home a tone that distinctly says Morgan Monroe.

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.
