Great sounding Kat Eyz Cougar model with stunning Mahogany figure.
1 3/16 width at nut • Quilted Mahogany
SN# 156006 • EXC (-) condition
This Kat Eyz Cougar model banjo is a well made professional instrument. Designed by Mike Smith of the Kat Eyz Banjo and Bridges Company, this is a Mahogany banjo with special figure we will mention in depth below. Unique peg head with triple cut peg head waist and stylized peak. Ebony peg head overlay has Kat Eyz script logo on top and interesting inlays in center. Truss rod cover at bottom near nut. Bone nut. Flat Ebony fingerboard has more pearl inlays carrying the theme from the peg head, with pearl block at 15th fret showing engraved “cougar”. Comes with 5 R. R. Spikes professionally installed at A, Bb, B, C, and D. Moderate fret ware on first 5 frets. Nickel hardware, including Fultz adjustable T.P. Four main Waverly tuners and Gotoh 5th string tuner.
Mahogany banjo, made with excellent straight-grain Mahogany neck and spectacularly figured Quilted Mahogany. The neck was crafted by Robin Smith of Heartland Banjo Company. This Quilted Mahogany resonator is from Steve Gill of Gill Manufacturing and it is unbelievable with how much figure is packed into the back and sidewalls. Multiple Cream bindings along fingerboard and around top and back edge of resonator.
This banjo is built using all high grade standard hardware.
Banjo sounds good. Set up well, with Renaissance head and Kat Eyz bridge.
