Pisgah Banjo Woodchuck 12", Ash Neck, SRT scale New
The Woodchuck sports a 12 inch Ash shell with a simple rolled brass tone ring, and combined with the lower string tension of a shorter string scale the result is a sweet expressive tone. It sounds great as a solo banjo or paired with a guitar. The Pisgah Woodchuck is one of Gryphon's most popular contemporary open-back banjos, and it's easy to hear, as well as see, why that's true.
The Pisgah crew looks out beyond the small world of banjos, using domestic hardwoods, making almost all of their own metal hardware, and taking good care of their workers and the planet (the Pisgah workshop is a net zero carbon 100% solar powered facility).
