Nechville Musical Products will celebrate Tom Nechville’s 25 years of building innovative banjos with a special, limited-edition version of their popular Phantom model.
Only 25 of these instruments will be built, which will be called the Nechville XXV. Tom says that the idea was to incorporate all of the most requested features he has received from his loyal customers, and create what he calls his own ultimate banjo.
Like all the Phantoms, the XXV will incorporate the Nechville Heli-Mount pot assembly, tunneled 5th string and compound radius fingerboard. It will be made with their new Timbr-Tronic block cocobolo tone ring, and hydraulically mounted Renaissance head. Tom likes both the way the wooden tone ring looks beneath the translucent head, and feels that it also accentuates the sound with this combination.
The neck and resonator will be made with figured maple, finished in a natural stain, with a cocobolo fingerboard. The price for the Nechville XXV is quoted at $4350.
Orders will be started on a first come, first served basis. Contact Nechville for more details.
