Speed Neck Option
The speed neck is a popular choice, where no finish is applied to the back of the neck.
This makes for a much smoother neck surface, that feels faster under your hand. The appearance of the neck, without stain or finish where the thumb rests, can be visually jarring at first, but is the choice of professional players.
For new Huber owners who expect to use the banjo outdoors or under stage lighting, the speed neck offers a comfortable feel withoutthe tendency of the finish to “grab” the thumb or side of the hand while moving up and down the neck.
