Here's what Recording King says about the Madison Open Back Banjo with Scooped Fretboard
The Recording King Madison banjos offer players an ideal combination of quality, versatility and value.
With a hand-rubbed satin finish, a maple neck with adjustable truss rod, and a true steam-bent maple rim, the Madison RK-OT25 is a vintage-style picking machine.
We've built this banjo specifically for old-time players, with features like our scooped fretboard, Presto tailpiece and Remo FiberSkyn head, as well as precise tension control thanks to the 24-bracket tension hoop.
The Madison OT25 is perfect for clawhammer and old-time players, with a scooped fretboard for strumming and a steam-bent maple rim for woody, traditional open-back tone.
