The Sullivan Festival line of banjos are without a doubt one of the best values in the banjo market today. We started with the proven solid foundation of a three ply red maple rim fitted with the Sullivan Professional flathead tone ring and one piece flange. This professional level pot assembly is outfitted with only top quality hardware and all parts are precision fit to a degree you can only achieve with over 35 years of building experience. The seasoned neck wood is made from either curly maple, mahogany, or black walnut and is paired with an East Indian rosewood fingerboard and Ebony overlay. We continue along the traditional path with the pre-war Gibson scale length fingerboard and use mother of pearl for the inlay material. The neck profile is slim, fast, and comfortable to play and the high quality tuners keep everything in tune. The buffed high gloss lacquer finish and traditional white binding round out this fantastic banjo.
