Freedom to Fly

Introducing Nechville's newest electric banjo. The Comet has a solid body with two humbucker pickups. Like all of our instruments it's made here in the USA. The Comet has the same great neck and radiused fingerboard as our premium acoustic banjos. It's perfect for plugging right into a headphone amp or device for practice. For live gigs, the Comet is as feedback resistant as an electric guitar, and incredibly light. The Comet is perfect for someone looking to electrify their banjo sound.

Radiused Fingerboard
7-12" compound radius for playability and comfort
Solid Body
Allows for quiet practice and loud performances
Dual Passive Humbuckers
With separate controls for a wide range of tone, no batteries required
