Nechville announces a joint venture with Wayne Sagmoen banjos. Wayne has become known for his expert craftsmanship and creative openback banjo designs. Reminiscent of the Ashborn Banjos of the 1860's, the Wagmoen Pots feature Block-style construction with a built-in wooden flange. The Wood flange reduces the metal part requirements and provides a smoother, more natural appearance while making the banjo more comfortable to hold.
The Nechville-Sagmoen collaboration has yielded a stunning result that is sure to get the attention of the entire banjo community. Its called The Atlas, and is the first in Nechville’s upcoming line of Hybrid banjos. That, it has a conventional pot and a Nechville neck assembly, with full adjustability and ease of use.
Imagine, if you will, taking the all new Atlas Openback Hybrid Nechville banjo into your grasp..
... You begin by wrapping one hand around the comfortable, sleek radiused neck,
and strumming your first chord with the other - instantly realizing what the
fuss is all about.
Completing this unique banjo is a lovely removable dowel stick that you can use for holding a pickup, or tone altering inserts.
As if the easy, comfortable playability of the radiused neck and the rich, resonant tone were not enough, you will find yourself experiencing a level of comfort you didn't know was possible. The exclusive beveled wooden armrest on the Atlas gives you many more hours of tireless playing. You'll love our exclusive thumb scoop, giving access to that sweet spot without loss of fretting playability.
Our Nechville tailpiece, neck and body system are so solid that you'll have no trouble keeping your new Atlas in tune. Weather changes will not harm your new Nechville since the finish on the Atlas is far superior to the inexpensive oil finishes you will find on virtually all other folk banjos. Nechville uses the finest components and issues a full lifetime warrantee with every banjo creation.
We're sending the Atlas over the top with
incredible patent-pending adjustable neck,
leaving all other open back banjos behind. You can take your banjo anywhere by
simply disengaging the neck and carrying both parts in a carry along bag or
suitcase. It only takes a moment to pop the neck and tailpiece back on when
you're ready to unpack and play; and you have the further benefit of choosing
the optimum playing action for your own style.
