Flinthill banjos are hand-crafted to the original pre-war specs— to the delight of collectors and players everywhere! There are no modern banjos that come any closer to sound of the pre-war originals—but Flinthill® beats EVERYBODY on price! The finest selected maple and mahogany are used for the necks and resonators and the lavish pearl inlay patterns are reproductions of vintage originals. You have your choice of an authentic, cast flathead tone ring or the rare raised head archtop tone ring—the most coveted, late 1920s solid version with no holes. All the neck proportions are pre-war-inspired and designed for easy playing. Authentic, 2-band planetary tuners and a geared 5th ensure accurate tuning and the one piece flange, correct period armrest and Presto-style tailpiece are true to tradition as well.
