There is a remarkable ease in the playability of the tunneled neck on the Nechville Phantom. The 7 to 12" compound radius of the fret board provides the comfort and playability that produces noting accuracy and clarity of tone. This dynamic neck shape gives you a slim feel with maximum structural integrity for strength of tone. Not only is it easier to form chords and other left hand positions, but you also get clean distinctive and full bodied musical notes. You'll clearly hear the difference when you notice the total lack of sonic interference that is so often present in other traditional banjos.

This combination of features translates to incredible musical power from every note.
