Nechville Orion in nickel finish. In mint condition except for one small glitch on neck shown in photo.
This Orion is the identical banjo played by Steve Martin on many of his live performances (although his is gold plated) but the sound is what convinced me to buy it initially.
The unique things about Nechville banjos are: 1) head adjustment and fingerboard height adjustment are incredibly simple via the modern design and, 2) this Orion has a Huge variety of sounds depending on head tension and bridge weight.
You can go from Ralph Stanley archtop sound to very bassy John Hartford, and anything in between, in a matter of minutes. Pretty cool actually.
The radius neck is extremely comfortable and I feel the action is better on this type fingerboard than on a flat board.
A professional level banjo in every respect, this Orion is a virtual cannon and I assure you you will not have any problems being heard in a jam.
Comes with very high quality original case,
spikes at 7, 9, & 10, Two radiused bridges of different weights,, and a radiused capo.
Retail price is well over $5,000 so my price is very reasonable.
