Our beloved 5 string banjo has undergone a number of important
modifications over its short history as a popular musical
instrument. The addition of the fifth string in the mid-nineteenth
century, the Loar-inspired Mastertone design and the Stelling
wedge-fit pot assembly have all been important mileposts in modern
Now, with the introduction of the STEALTH, Scott Vestal puts his mark on banjo design in much the same manner as he has as a player - boldly, creatively and with what is sure to be a lasting effect.
From the innovative Hidden 5th String to the meticulously
radiused fingerboard and sleek contemporary lines, the STEALTH
represents a new standard in banjo building.

Scott's distinctive tone is something that banjoists have been
seeking for years, many putting their own instruments through
multiple mutations in search of "that sound." Owning a STEALTH
is as close as you can come to producing the tone that has made
Scott Vestal one of the most admired players in recent history.
Of course, with the technical difficulty of so much of Scott's material, ease of playabilty is a must and the radiused fingerboard and attention to detail make this banjo exceptionally smooth and easy to play.
"The Stealth is the result of my many years of experimenting
with banjo design. Each one is hand made using the finest materials
available and setup to exact specifications by myself."
