Open Back - Premium Griffin

We began to produce the OPEN BACK banjo in 1990 in response to requests from our friends playing oldtime music in the Netherlands. It has become one of our most popular styles to date. We offer quite an extensive variety of options so the traditional player can achieve exactly the look he is going for while having fun with the frailing sound.
