Equipped for attack with a beautiful, inspiring design.

Traditional banjo players commence and carpe noctem! The beginning of a new dusk is upon us, ready to be amplified with the 5-string Moonbird acoustic-electric banjo. The Moonbird Series takes its inspiration from the harmony of the moon and the stars, relaying that same beauty to the sound produced from some of the wonderful Luna bluegrass instruments out there today. Most standard tuning begins with G, D, G, B, D. While its design is geared for the creative mind, the attack produced by the transparent head will whisk you back to pickin' on grandpa's porch.
