OVERVIEW

Exceptional tone and handcrafted perfection.

The Soloist RK-R85A-SN banjo has all the outstanding features of the Professional mahogany model, but with a beautiful flamed maple resonator and figured neck. It also features a glorious sunburst finish for a classic, woodsy look.

This resonator banjo combines classic pre-war style features and desirable modern touches to create the ultimate bluegrass banjo. This model features a flamed maple resonator, figured maple neck, bound ebony fretboard, American Standard thread hardware, 20-hole tone ring and a 3-ply rim. Designed by Greg Rich, this model recalls the most supremely crafted banjos from the Golden Age of musical instruments.

The Soloist features the traditional Recording King floral peghead and inlay and an authentic Mastertone-style flange. With its exceptional tone and handcrafted perfection, the Soloist banjo will appeal to players as well as collectors.
