More Information from Nechville Banjos 'The Athena':

As you gaze at the back of the neck and the resonator, note the superior Nechville craftsmanship and finish.


As beautiful and elegant as its mythical namesake, the Athena is amazingly light in weight as you pick it up. The radiused neck is sleek and comfortable, with its Heart Blossom inlay sparkling in abalone and pearl. The walnut neck tells you this work of the highest quality, but as light as it is, how does sound? As you play your first notes, you expect the sound you have heard from other lightweight banjos, but no, this is the sound all banjos should have – rich, full, powerful! It is as if the banjo doesn't know its lighter than it is. But you know. And so does your back.
You see that the Nechville inline tailpiece is adjustable three different ways, and you remember that this is a Heli-Mount, customizable for any style or setup. You've heard how stable and versatile the Heli-Mount is, and now are struck by its simple elegant beauty.
