Pisgah’s Laydie is their homage to Vega's Whyte Laydie, one the most revered open-back banjos out there. It features the famous scalloped tone ring, which is made by hand and based on the original specifications. The particular banjo has a 12- inch diameter shell which adds a lot of bottom end (for a banjo) to the clarity and thump. Like its ancestor it has an unstained, “Whyte” maple neck. Other features include a persimmon fretboard with a frailing scoop, aged brass hardware, and a star inlay on the headstock. The Pisgah Laydie presents amazing volume, punchiness, and great responsiveness for playability. Includes a padded gig bag.
