The fine build qualities of the Tonewood Walnut series are reflected in the DB-40 model which combines quality hardware and craftsmanship with classic design even when new at a brilliant price point. 

This is really ex demo and not been owned before but it has minor cosmetic marks and is being sold as used at a vastly reduced price.

This 5 string banjo is manufactured in the far east to a design by a master craftsman in the UK,  and is built to last using modern techniques to such a high level that it compares favourably to much high priced banjos.

The beautiful walnut neck bound with maple neck and dark rosewood fingerboard inlaid with natural abalone inlays give this banjo a very distinctive look.

The DB 40 is a powerful banjo that's great to play. 

You can try it before you buy in our showroom in North Yorkshire by appointment

We have taken a look at other banjos available today on Ebay and beyond and we have to say this represents a great deal at the price offered, just the one available, please feel free to ask any questions.
