2009 Nechville Orion - Gold

Photo for Ad 181756


This is a very high end Nechville that is stunning to look at.

Exc (+) • SN: 0209-982
1-1/4″ width at nut

This 2009 Nechville Orion is a really attractive figured Maple banjo, and the Amber sunburst finish is very flattering as well. The Ebony peghead veneer has “Nechville” logo inlayed at the top in pearl and an antler motif at the center of the neck in pearl. Truss rod cover near the bone nut. The radiused Ebony fingerboard is inlaid with more antler motif. The fingerboard is bound with nice flame Maple bindings with large black dots for position markers on the 5th string side binding. Railroad spikes are installed at A, Bb, B, C, and D for using a 5th string capo. There is gold hardware throughout this banjo. The tuners are Schaller tuners with the second and third being Schaller D tuners and the first and fourth are just standard; all of the tuners have matching pearl buttons. All are fly cut for thumbwheel adjustment and the 5th string tuner is also a Schaller. The resonator is a one-piece veneer which is extremely attractive. Like the fingerboard the resonator is bound with flame Maple binding with accent lines seen on the sides. This banjo has a 3 ply Maple rim and the patented Heli-mount system of head tightening.

This banjo is great to look at with all the nice Maple and coloration throughout… But it is set to play well and it sounds very good!
Comes with a good HC.
