PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Soloist has all the outstanding features of the Professional mahogany model, but with a beautiful flamed maple resonator and figured neck. It also features a glorious sunburst finish for a classic, woodsy look.

This resonator banjo combines classic pre-war style features and desirable modern touches to create the ultimate bluegrass banjo. This model features a flamed maple resonator, figured maple neck, bound ebony fretboard, American Standard thread hardware, 20-hole tone ring and a 3-ply rim. Designed by Greg Rich, this model recalls the most supremely crafted banjos from the Golden Age of musical instruments.

The RK-R87-SN features genuine gold-plated hardware -- a true vintage appointment. The Soloist also features the traditional Recording King floral peghead and inlay and an authentic Mastertone-style flange. With its exceptional tone and handcrafted perfection, this banjo will appeal to players as well as collectors.
