T he Clareen Special (23
inches/585mm -19 frets) is an excellent Tenor banjo with a
crisp tone. The two piece neck of well selected maple has
a contrasting mahogany centre strip for stability and appearance.
All the wood is finished in its natural colour as is the resonator
and block maple rim.
The fingerboard and peghead are inlaid with simple, but
tasteful, Mother of Pearl decorations. The main positions
are marked with either a harp or shamrock inlay. The tonering
is of brass in an arch head principle.
All metal parts are of brass which have been nickel plated.
The hooks are of mild steel which is also nickel plated. The
banjo comes complete with geared Schaller tuners, arm-rest.
The banjo is available in other woods or special custom
designs made to order.
