Modeled after the original Mastertone banjos of the 1930's, our RK Elite
85 offers players classic vintage snap and handcrafted construction.
Professional components like a classic Mastertone-style tone ring and
true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim provide the fundamentals for traditional
banjo tone. The highly-flamed maple resonator & neck and sunburst
finish result in a stunning banjo with excellent projection and
beautiful aesthetics. With classic design features like the
vintage-style double-cut Recording King peghead and custom Hearts &
Flowers-style peghead and fretboard inlay, the Elite 85 combines
historic banjo tradition with modern construction for a true top shelf
instrument. Features a 5 year warranty.
