Five-Star Bluegrass Banjo Neck

Beautiful flame-grain curly maple! Made of handsome flame-grain domestic curly maple that finishes beautifully.

This neck features the classic bluegrass peghead shape and fits our Five-Star bluegrass banjo pot. It's ready for final shaping, sanding and finishing.

This is a high quality one-piece neck with matching peghead "ears." We've done the difficult machine work, so you can customize it the way you want. You'll save time and you won't need to tool up for complicated machine work: the heel profile and peghead handstop are shaped, and the upper surfaces are sanded flat. Standard 3/8" (10mm)-diameter pegholes are drilled. A 7/32" x 7/16" (5.56mm x 11.11mm) slot has been cut to fit our 18" Hot Rod Truss Rod. Width at the nut is 1-3/16" (30.16mm). The 5th string peghole is not drilled, and the fingerboard and peghead veneer are not included.

The neck heel is machined to fit our Five-Star bluegrass banjo pot, or similar 11" (279.40mm)-diameter Mastertone-style banjo rim with one-piece resonator flange. Please note that this neck heel shape will not fit a Gibson® "tube and plate" rim, nor a straight-sided rim such as our Old-Time banjo pot.

Easy finishing options
ColorTone Aerosol Guitar Lacquer is an economical way for the beginner to apply a finish without elaborate setup or equipment. Only a few cans are needed to completely finish a neck. Or try brush-on application with Brushing Varnish.

Bluegrass Banjo Neck, Curly Maple

(Customer's Reviews)

This banjo neck exceeded my expectations. Great grain on the neck throughout. It does require some shaping and lots of sanding, but as you can see in the photos, it's well worth the effort. All the finish products are from Stew-Mac.
