About this banjo
As beautiful and elegant as its mythical namesake, the Athena is substantially lighter light in weight but with no loss of tone. It is sonically bold and dripping with tone.
The radiused neck is sleek and comfortable. Being slightly narrower than most of our necks, it is easy to get your hand around no matter the length of your fingers. The inspiring Heart Blossom inlay sparkles in abalone and pearl, with a story of friendship and love. The perfect finish on the walnut neck and resonator highlights work of the highest quality, and as efficiently light as it is, you’ll enjoy playing it for hours.
Upon striking your first notes, you’ll be surprised by the lively, full bodied notes that emerge. This is the sound more banjos should have – rich, saturated, powerful tone. It is as if the banjo doesn’t know its lighter than it is. But you will be happy every time you pick it up, and your back will be happy too.
The Nechville in-line tailpiece is adjustable three different ways, and remember that this is a Heli-Mount. It is quickly customizable for any style or custom setup . Now you know why Nechville Heli-mounts are described as stable and versatile yet simple and elegantly beautiful.
