The last one is Spirit Jason Burleson Signature Model. We wanted to introduce a top-tension banjo based on a classic design with simple pearl ornamentation, but also showcasing some novelty elements. It features a radiused, 24 fret, standard width extended fingerboard and a “speed neck” (the wood is without lacquer and is only lightly cured and polished with honey wax), with a massive resonator and our new one–piece flange. The finish on the metal parts is half shiny/half matt, sand blasted nickel plated parts are engraved with patterns corresponding with the peghead and neck inlays. This mahogany banjo is fitted with a sand blasted and engraved Kershner tailpiece; the maple bridge with ebony plate is also radiused. This instrument is suited for both hardcore bluegrass players as well as musicians exploring modern approaches. It delivers typical top-tension sound, and was created with help from Blue Highway’s Jason Burleson.
