  • Description


The Hot Rod is a compact Gourdie with a lot of punch. The Hotrod series uses gourds that are in the 9″ dia. range. This one is 9 1/4. The canteen style gourd is what gives this banjo a lot of bright tones. It’s very comfortable to hold because of the flat shape of the canteen gourd.
