This banjo looks as if it was designed by Man Ray! However, it sounds fine and plays easily. All chrome plated aluminum with no dowel stick or coordinator rod. The fingerboard is ebony and the tuning pegs are conical shaped. The head is 11 1/4" and the neck is attached so that the bridge is closer to the center of the head than on any of my other banjoes. This gives the Merlin a unique robust tone.
