The Dobson

The Hutchings Dobson Banjo is a beautifully made open back banjo based around a traditional 3 ply Cherry rim. Classic 19th Century style with square peghead, boat heel and soft “V” neck profile, it also benefits from a dual action trussrod (accessed from underneath the brass scoop cover) and a geared Peghed 5th string tuner. It is finished off with a thin coat of Nitrocellolose Lacquer.
