Some of the most prized banjos of the pre war era were mahogany banjos with nickel plated parts. In fact, many players think of the five string banjo primarily in this form and it is fair to suggest that the majority of banjos manufactured since the early 20th century have been mahogany and nickel.
Our Lancaster uses this basic configuration, with the standard Huber inlay pattern. Perhaps reflecting this commonplace, it is also our most popular model.
The neck and resonator are made from choice mahogany with a natural mahogany finish. The resonator features twin concentric rings in the back and the neck and resonator are both trimmed with white binding.
