When you pick up a Nechville Classic, you will be immediately struck by a sensation of high quality. You’ll wonder why your left hand slides so smoothly and effortlessly over the ebony and fancy maple neck on the Classic. You’ll notice that the wide polished frets are smooth and comfortable to the touch. You’ll discover that the silky smooth and durable Nechville finish makes your left hand slide faster. You’ll especially be pleased next time you bring your banjo in from the cold, because the finish on the Classic WILL NOT CRACK like traditional Lacquer finishes.
The carefully crafted 7 to 12″ compound radius of the fretboard surface helps with noting the accuracy and clarity of tone. This neck’s shape gives you the slimmest feel with maximum structural integrity for strength of tone. Not only is it easier to form chords and left hand positions, but you’ll get clean distinctive and full bodied musical notes without buzzing or other sonic interference common in traditional banjos. The Classic’s slightly wider profile gives you plenty of room for chokes and slides while the fat frets form a secure foundation for the string’s anchor point on the fretboard, translating into incredible musical power from every note and frets the last twice as long before needing a fret job. From a distance, you see a reminder of the traditional banjo. When you get behind a Classic, you’ll leave the others behind.
