MasterTone 5-String Banjo Files



  • Description

    General Information:

    These 3D Files were constructed from our popular MasterTone 5-String Banjo Plans that we have in the plan section of our site. Refer to the Specs Tab on that page, located below the "BUY" button for these 3D files. You will find that these files will provide a top level of convenience to customers who possess a CNC router, or access to CNC routing services. 

    We offer our MasterTone 5-String Banjo either as a complete set or individual pieces (4) pieces total. For instance if you only want the Neck or the fretboard, you can purchase the files to mill them separately.

    Unsure if these files will work on your CNC system? Download our free Gibson Mustache Bridge 3D CNC files to be sure. Download HERE.

    Note that all hardware including tuners, tone ring, and all other metal parts, frets, purfling, bindings, screws, truss rod, and sides are not a part of these files and are shown for illustration purposes.

    All these 3D CNC files are formatted in STL format (Stereolithography) Most 3D CNC controller software should handle this popular formatting. Check with your software provider if you are unsure of this.

    We recommend that you purchase the PDF plans MasterTone 5-String Banjo to give details of construction for these model files.

The neck is modeled with a 1.5 degree angle to the pot assembly.
