    KICKSTARTER EDITION SHACKLETON 2 BANJO (in choice of 5 or 6 string model)

    Special Kickstarter edition of the Shackleton Two banjo. The Shackleton One banjo re-launched a British industry – the first production banjo to be manufactured in Britain for more than 60 years. Now the Shackleton Two takes the concept a step further with hand-crafted refinements that make it an even more desirable instrument, including: coordinator rod handmade from Appalachian rock maple to match the neck; twin square-section carbon fiber truss rods fitted in the neck for even greater neck stability; separate maple fingerboard in contrasting grain pattern; distinctive black binding on neck and on base of pot. And this is a special labelled edition not available elsewhere.

    Available in either 5 or 6 string... so if you play the guitar but not the banjo choose the 6 string!!

    THE ULTIMATE SHACKLETON BANJO (choose 5 or 6 string): DESIGNED IN CONSULTATION WITH YOU, BUILT BY HAND IN ENGLAND WITH WORLD'S BEST HARDWARE.

    ONLY TWO AVAILABLE: EACH ONE UNIQUELY DESIGNED WITH THE BACKER

    Whether you're a banjo player, a guitar player (in which case we will make you a six string version tuned just like a guitar) or a collector of beautiful things... this is the ultimate Shackleton Kickstarter reward.

    This instrument will be designed directly in consultation with you. It will be built by hand from selected woods which you can also select with us, and fitted with the best hardware available in the banjo world, and, most importantly of all, will be completely exclusive to you.

    We are only going to make two of these commemorative Kickstarter instruments, and each one will be unique to the requirements of each backer who orders one.

    You'll be able to visit our Norwich factory to discuss design and features, and to visit again to see work in progress, and if you wish to collect your finished instrument.

    Using the best techniques and materials we will inlay the fingerboard with Antarctic/Shackleton motifs which you can help us to select.

    In addition this instrument will feature your name and a commemoration of this unique Kickstarter campaign on a nameplate. You will also receive a unique owner's certificate and builder's letter of authentication.

    And needless to say, like all the Shackleton range banjos/banjitars, this will be as fine sounding an instrument as any you can find in the world.

    Supplied in high-quality hard case.
