Introducing a resonator banjo for the contemporary world. Containing all of the features of the pro Heli-Mount line, the Orion adds some nice wood appointments: curly maple binding on a curly maple neck and resonator and tasteful ‘Antler’ pearl inlay.
We inspect each an every instrument we ship out for maximum playability. We adjust the action and adjust intonation when needed. If you would like a specific adjustment, just add it to your order notes and we would be happy to adjust to your liking.
The exact appearance of new instruments vary. These photos may not be of the actual instrument you will be receiving. Actual photos available upon request.
