The resonator flanges are nickel plated and can be removed iif you wish to convert the banjo into 'open back'.

The neck is constructed from solid rock maple. The 22-fret fingerboard has Hardwood Bow Tie Inlays at the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 10th, 12th, 15th, 17th, and 19th frets. The nickel silver fretwork is perfectly positioned, rounded and polished for smooth playing.
