More about Robert Schmidt Banjo, Plectrum

Fender's Robert Schmidt Plectrum Banjo delivers the great sparkling four-string tone and vibe the Flogging Molly multi-instrumentalist is so well known for. Schmidt designed his signature banjo to withstand the rigors of both the road and his energetic playing style, so it’ll take whatever you give it and laugh while it asks for more.

Features include an all-maple rim and neck with dark walnut-stain finish, ten-ply laminated maple resonator, chrome bell brass tone ring, one-piece flange and tube, 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with white pearloid crown inlays and aged white binding, maple bridge with ebony tip, chrome tuners with white pearloid buttons, Fishman® Rare Earth™ banjo pickup for great amplified sound and performance, and Schmidt’s signature on the headstock.
