  • Description


My little Hot Rod Banjos usually have a small gourd, 9 1/2″ dia. or less. This not only gives a bright punchy  sound, but is a bit more comfortable to hold. This guy features “Training Wheel”….side dots where the frets would be to get you playing fretless faster for the novice clawhammer player.
