The RK-R80 Professional combines classic pre-war style features and desirable modern touches to create a great-sounding bluegrass banjo. The Professional features a mahogany resonator, mahogany neck, bound ebony fretboard, American Standard thread hardware, 20-hole tone ring and a 3-ply rim.
This no longer made banjo is in virtually new condition and is well suited for amateur enjoyment and training, or full time professional use. It's a whole lot of banjo for a modest price.
