Epiphone Mayfair 5-String Banjo
Epiphone Mayfair 5-String Banjo
Epiphone's Mayfair 5-String Banjo is a recreation of the historic first-generation masterpiece from the 1920s that helped to make the "House of Stathopoulo" one of the premier instrument makers in New York and around the world. Its features include a mahogany resonator with historic Mayfair inlay design, mahogany neck, traditional headstock design, and Remo head.
The Mayfair 5-String Banjo has the familiar 5-string profile but with the classic Epiphone detail that made the “House of Stathopoulo” the premier banjo maker of its day. The Mayfair features a mahogany resonator with the historic Mayfair banner design in pearloid, blue, red and surrounded by period-correct pearloid binding. On the front is a nickel armrest and an industry-standard Remo head which provides maximum volume and tone along with a hard maple bridge with an ebony cap, and a traditional “clamshell” design tailpiece.
The mahogany neck has single-layer binding and a traditional “C” shape with dual coordinator rods for full and even intonation everywhere on the neck. The fingerboard has 22 frets and traditional Epiphone “Snowflake” fingerboard inlay with the historic “Epiphone” logo at the end of the fingerboard. The headstock has traditional Epiphone banjo tuners as well as a 1920s-style headstock profile with a perfect recreation of the era’s Mayfair logo in pearloid, red, and green and the iconic Epiphone banner logo in black and gold.
