Bat Top Tension Custom built - Matt nickel

The BAT is the first of the three banjos that come with original headstock and inlay designs from the PRUCHA artistic genius. The banjo pot has a standard flathead tone ring with an original design in a zinc alloy flange It is beautifully inlaid with the BAT pattern on the headstock and fingerboard. Your preference in the type of wood and binding used will result in a completely original work of art. This one we made as Top Tension banjo with a solid resonator. You can see nice wood, which we used on this piece, under brown-yellow sunburst color.
