The Ozark 2141GN is an excellent all-round banjo that sits well in session or stage situations. There is a great review of one of these banjos from one of our customers on the 'Banjo Hangout' web pages. It has a design and build quality that has stood the test of time. (Gibson introduced and have been building their Mastertone design banjos since 1924)

The Pot Assembly… The three ply rim is built from rock maple that is then turned on a lathe to a diameter of 279.40mm (11”) and a thickness of 19.05mm (3/4”). The heavy 1.58kg (31/2 lb) 11” Mastertone-style, bell brass flat-top tone ring is fitted to the rim. The tone ring is drilled out with eighteen small diameter holes on the inner circumference in the ‘Gibson-style’. A pre-war ‘Gibson style’ cast brass flange is fitted with 24 bracket hooks to give firm and even tension on the tension hoop. A double bracketed, engraved armrest is fitted. The tailpiece is the classic 'Waverley stye' tailpiece type. All metal work is heavily chrome plated to a very high standard. A milky 11” diameter Remo ‘weatherking’ plastic head is fitted (top side coated) along with an ebony tipped 15.87mm (5/8”) maple bridge. Four chrome-plated resonator thumbscrews are provided to attach the resonator. The resonator is constructed from maple with an attractive ‘tiger tail’ flame maple veneer. It has a convex back inlaid with ivory/black rings and is fully bound in matching ivory/black colour binding. The selected natural maple is clear lacquered and highly polished.

The Neck Assembly… The neck is attached to the pot assembly with double ‘Gibson-style’ lag bolts and two coordinating rim rods which give you the facility to alter the ‘action’ of banjo to suit your particular style of playing relative to the strings of your choice. The neck is constructed from maple and spliced with a black centred detail line, it is also fitted with an internal adjustable steel truss rod. The rosewood 22 fret fingerboard is fully bound to match the resonator and is inlaid with vintage style 'pearlite' inlays and small black side dot position markers at the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 10th, 12th, 17th,19th & 22nd frets. The geared 5th string tuner is located adjacent the 5th fret. The nickel silver fretwork is perfectly positioned, rounded and polished for smooth playing. The nut is precisely cut and filed for a comfortable string action at the first position. The peg head (headstock) is faced in ebony veneer and inlaid with abalone/pearl in a traditional design. A white edged black plastic ‘bell’ shape truss rod cover is fitted. A set of high quality ‘vintage style’ planetary-geared tuners are fitted to give positive and trouble free tuning. The tuners are chrome plated to match the hardware of the pot assembly. The natural maple neck is clear lacquered and highly polished to match the resonator and body.

Supplied with Deluxe Grafton Hard Shell case.
