Description

This is New #447 Barry Sholder Gourd ,Curly Maple,5 string fretless banjo. That’s a mouth full  but that’s what she is. This guy has an ebonized(dyed black) Cedar fretless fingerboard. Scale 26 3/16″ Good sized kettle/canteen gourd, (could be either) but has great tonal range. If you tune these down to Open D and play G chord shapes…..killer growl tone.
