The Nechville Midnight Phantom Custom Banjo offers all of the quality and technical advances of Tom Nechville’s designs, with subtle decoration.
Built with a 3-ply Maple rim, Curly Maple for the neck and resonator and ebony for the fingerboard, the Midnight Phantom Custom also uses the Heli-Mount system, Cyclotronic head system and Timber-Tronic wood Tone-Ring.
These design choices add another advantage – significantly reduced weight. This banjo weighs less than an average Gibson Les Paul!
Other standard Nechville features include the tunneled 5th string and compound radius fingerboard, 7-inch radius at the nut to 12-inch at the body.
The finish used on the Nechville Midnight Phantom Custom Banjo is a walnut tinted clear gloss with subtle shading that really brings out the figuring of the wood. The tuners are 14:1 conventional sealed models and work very smoothly. Nechville also uses a stainless steel double-action truss rod, so it’s much easier to keep these instruments in top playing form. A compensated bridge and the Nechville ‘Comfort Armrest’ are factory stock.
