Quality open-back banjos, hand-crafted in the heart of
Music City, Nashville, Tennessee
For many of us, playing music is one of the best ways we can find to express what’s in our heart. That’s why here at Nashville Banjo Company, we carefully carve and craft each instrument by hand, one at a time, to match the needs and personalities of the musicians we serve. We offer a series of four custom models, as well as large variety of options and upgrades to help make your banjo truly one-of-a-kind.
There is something very satisfying in the song and rhythm of an open-back banjo. It can pull our thoughts towards a simpler season and help settle a busy mind. All our models strive to lend to that experience and are designed to produce a mellow, but still clear banjo tone.
We consider it a great privilege to build an instrument that you’ll love to play, one that will inspire you to share your song with others, and one your family will treasure for generations to come.
