Description

This is a new Barry Sholder Gourd 5 string Faux fret banjo. Faux fret….fake fret. The frets are there but you do not fell them because they are flush with the fingerboard. They are in the correct order of a standard 5 string banjo. By doing this it gets you into the fun of fretless playing and still having a roadmap. This banjo some beautiful appointments and great tone.
