The Special

The Special is the mid-range banjo. It has a walnut neck and a beautiful burl walnut resonator, ivoroid binding and nickel-plated metal parts. Like the Celebrity model it also has a little more inlay in the peghead than the Buck Creek model. This banjo is for the picker who wants a professional quality walnut sound with a little added beauty.
