AVAILABLE TO ORDER: PRICE SUBJECT TO FINAL QUOTATION

Already famous as innovators in resonator banjos Nechville  undertook a joint venture with Wayne Sagmoen banjos to create the Atlas openback models.

Wayne has become known for his expert craftsmanship and creative openback banjo designs. Reminiscent of the Ashborn Banjos of the 1860's, the Sagmoen Pots feature Block-style construction with a built-in wooden flange. The Wood flange reduces the metal part requirements and provides a smoother, more natural appearance while making the banjo more comfortable to hold.

The Nechville-Sagmoen collaboration has yielded a stunning result: The Atlas.

The Atlas features a remarkably comfortable, sleek neck, with fantastic playability and wonderful depth, resonance, and sustain.

Nechville has carefully selected, cut and crafted aged timber blocks into an artful and tonally superior banjo body. The resulting 12" body is capped with exotic hard tone wood, imparting a dark and warming timbre to this banjo's sound. The Renaissance head gives an organic, mellow, responsive tone.

Completing this unique banjo is a lovely removable dowel stick that you can use for holding a pickup, or tone altering inserts.

The comfort beveled wooden armrest on the Atlas gives hours of tireless playing and the exclusive thumb scoop gives access to that sweet spot without loss of fretting playability.

The Nechville tailpiece, neck and body system are so solid that you'll have no trouble keeping your new Atlas in tune.

Of course the Atlas also benefits from Nechville's extraordinary patent-pending adjustable neck, allowing you to take your banjo anywhere by simply disengaging the neck and carrying both parts in a carry along bag or suitcase. It only takes a moment to pop the neck and tailpiece back on when you're ready to unpack and play; and you have the further benefit of choosing the optimum playing action for your own style.
