The Clareen 'Special' is hand built in Galway Ireland by Tom Cussen.

It is an excellent Tenor banjo with a crisp clear tone. The two piece neck of well selected maple has a contrasting mahogany centre strip for stability and appearance. All the wood is finished in its natural colour as is the resonator and block maple rim.

The fingerboard is inlaid at the 1st, 3rd 7th, 10th, 15th & 17th frets with a mother of pearl dot markerand tasteful harps or shamrocks at the 5th and 12th frets. The peghead is inlaid with pearl dot and a Shamrock or harp to echo the fingerboard.

The unique Clareen tone-ring is of brass in an arch-top design.

All metal parts are of nickel plated brass. The steel tension hooks are also nickel plated. The banjo comes complete with a set of geared Schaller tuners & nickel plated arm-rest.
