The new short-scale ""Laydie Belle"" Irish Tenor banjo is designed for playing traditional music. Loud and proud with a Whyte-Laydie tone ring and three-ply solid maple rim, the G9480 comes with special-gauge strings for Irish Tenor tuned GDAE (one octave below a mandolin) so mandolin and fiddle players can add banjo to their tonal palettes. With other string gauges it can also be tuned as a standard tenor (CGDA) or ""Chicago Tuning"" (DGBE) for guitarists and ukulele players.

Other features include a three-piece maple/walnut/maple neck, 17-fret rosewood fingerboard with vintage-style B&D inlays, 19"" scale, 24 tension brackets with notched hoop, 11"" Remo High Crown Renaissance head, vintage-style ""No Knot""-type tailpiece, 1 3/16"" nut, geared die-cast machine heads, Vega-style armrest, nickel-plated hardware, and a luxurious amber maple gloss finish.
