Banjolele

Crafted with select maple and hand fabricated stainless hardware, the Weitzel Banjolele is the perfect balance of the ukulele sound with banjo power. It features a unique flared rim design that enables hiding the tension screws internally, for a smooth look and playing comfort. Like all Weitzel banjos, it is also fully adjustable, with a sliding neck to rim connection for dialing in the perfect string action and adjustable spacing for the resonator.
