OVERVIEW

Classic sound and historic design.

The Dirty 30's open-back RKO-3S sits at the perfect crossroads of classic sound and historic design. Like the original Montgomery Ward mail order instruments from the first half of the century, this Dirty 30s banjo is the ideal companion for singer-songwriters, folk stylists or traveling troubadours.

This banjo packs excellent playability and historic vibe into a retro-infused package that makes vintage style and traditional banjo sound accessible to every player. With a great-looking satin finish, Maple neck and Remo Recording King banjo head, the RKO-3S delivers classic tone and is light enough to take on the road with ease.

A case is sold separately.
