New Banjos for Sale

Bluegrass Shack Productions is the first Stelling banjo dealer in the State of Illinois. We can special order any model that you would like. If we don't have any Stelling banjos currently in stock, it means that we are waiting on more! They sell very quickly here and generally don't stay in stock for more than two weeks. We are also proud to carry the full line of Gold Tone banjos and accessories! We have many of these banjos in stock, and can special order anything that we don't have in stock. Please call us for a price quote and availability. We also carry Recording King, Morgan Monroe, Gold Star, Saga, Flinthill, Asheville, Savannah and Rover banjos. All banjos include a factory setup, PLUS another quality check and setup by Illinois State Banjo Champion Chris Talley Armstrong. We know you'll appreciate the look, sound and feel of these quality instruments.
