The Ne Plus Ultra is the most incredibly crafted, meticulously detailed open back banjo in the Recording King collection. The beauty of this model is immediate: the stunning "Tree of Life" abalone inlay on the peghead and fretboard was designed by Greg Rich and demonstrates his appreciation for the traditional pre-war style.
The rim is made from flamed maple and features binding for more style. Flamed maple is also used on the neck which also features an ebony skunk stripe. This model features a Whyte Laydie tone ring, a Kershner tailpiece, dual coordinator rods and 24 brackets.he Ne Plus Ultra is a perfect example of this.
