Bishline banjos are always a lot of fun to have in the store, and are a great option for intermediate or advanced three-finger players looking to move into a more unique and more hand-built instrument. This 2014 Bishline Patriot has much of your classic bluegrass sound, but prices below many other comparable banjos, despite being in very good condition. A solid mahogany neck is complimented by a mellower walnut pot, with a tone hoop for richness and sustain. The resonator also features some beautifully burled walnut, making this instrument nearly as much of a delight to look at as it is to play. Best of all, the Patriot weights a mere 11 and a half pounds, putting it firmly into featherweight class where resonator banjos are concerned!

Fretwear is minimal, and the instrument has been freshly set up for ideal playability. Since we are not Bishline dealers, this particular instrument the only one we anticipate having in the near future. Included in the price is the original hard shell case. Come give it a listen before it's gone.
