Meet "Béla"! Béla is a 5-string banjo. However, she differs in that she doesn't have the short string on top. She can be played in open tuning, or standard guitar tuning with the caveat that there's no Big E. Her body is made from a wooden salad bowl, her neck is hand-carved maple and features a layered "Neapolitan" heel and "rainbow" adjustable bridge. Her fretboard is made from Bubinga wood. Béla has a starburst tone ring and 6" drum resonator giving her the banjo sound.
