Slope D Banjo Killer 9956
This SD Banjo Killer 9956 shipped to Down Home Guitars on May 2nd, 2023.
Bryan Sutton coined the name “Banjo Killer” after nicknaming his guitar in the late 90’s. Featuring a double scalloped X brace design, stiffer back bracing and a 25.5” scale, the Banjo Killer’s bark is as terrifying as its bite. Bearclaw Sitka Spruce, figured Mahogany and our distinctive “snakehead” headstock round out an otherwise understated aesthetic presentation.
