A Clawhammer Dream

Take the weight of the world off your shoulders. The Atlas is ultra light (around six pounds), sounds great and is a joy to play. Its design was a Nechville-Sagmoen collaboration and echos the Ashborn Banjos of the 1860. Modern Nechville innovations make the Atlas the most advanced traditional openback to date.
