The RK-1000 Deluxe will dazzle you with our hand-selected wood choices, top-shelf hardware and custom engraving, but you'll fall in love as soon as you pick a few notes.

Made from authentic pre-war style parts, and hand-assembled under direction from Greg Rich, the 1000 Deluxe is in a class by itself.

We've finished it in an Argentine Grey nitrocellulose lacquer, with vintage-style gold sparkle binding and Greg's floral-style hand-engraving on the 24K gold-plated hardware. We intended this banjo to be a work of art, but it will spend more time in your hands than on display.
