Five-Star Old-Time Banjo Neck

Beautiful flame-grain curly maple! Our old-time neck is an excellent choice for the banjo maker.

We've done the difficult machine work, so you can customize it way you want. Made of handsome flame-grain domestic curly maple that finishes beautifully, it features a blank undrilled peghead you can bandsaw to any old-time shape you desire. Ready for final shaping, sanding and finishing, this neck fits our old-time banjo pot.

Specifications:
This is a high quality one-piece neck with matching peghead "ears." 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. Peghead measures 3-3/4" x 7" (95.25mm x 177.80mm). A 7/32" x 7/16" (5.56mm x 11.11mm) slot has been cut to fit our Hex Nut 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 a straight-sided 11" (279.40mm)-diameter rim such as our Old-Time banjo pot. Please note that this shape will not fit our Five-Star® bluegrass banjo pot, or similar 11" (279.40mm)-diameter Mastertone-style banjo rim.

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.
