Morgan Monroe MB-9 Deluxe Duelington 24 Bracket Remo Head Mahogany Resonator 5-String Banjo!

The Morgan Monroe MB-9 Duelington Deluxe is Rocky Top’s top of the line banjo. The Duelington combines aesthetic beauty with precision craftsmanship great for intermediate range players.  From the mother of pearl inlay on a dark ebony fingerboard to the gorgeous resonator, this instrument is a particularly nice offering for it’s price point.  The bell brass tone ring produces a classic bluegrass tone.  The fit and finish isn’t going to be quite as nice on these when compared to RK’s and Goldtones, such as minor scratches and abrasions in the finish and slight mismatches where the binding meets up to the wood, and things similar to that.  But all that is only cosmetics and the price sits low enough to justify the difference for all the features available.  If it had a nicer fit and finish it would probably have to cost about twice as much.  Still plays and sounds good and is a good workhorse type banjo!

Includes full professional setup, 5th string spike installation, and shipping within the lower 48 US all for free!
