Goldtone's most popular openback ever! Our premier open back banjo from Goldtone has remarkable tone and exquisite cosmetics. A White Ladye tone ring combined with a thin maple rim provides ample volume and a wonderful plunky tone.
The design provides a plunky but punchy tone well-suited for old timey and folk music. A White Ladye three part tone ring is coupled with a 1/2" rim. Most competitors use a common 3/4" bluegrass rim and our 1/2" rim provides more air chamber volume. Other features include ebony fingerboard, vintage cut heel, no-knot tailpiece, and double adjusting truss rod. The 2008 model also includes a free fingerboard scoop which previously was only an option.
Features include ebony fingerboard, cloud position markers, vine headstock inlay, Straight Line tailpiece, reversible two way truss rod, body and neck binding, maple neck and double coordinator rods finished in a rich mahogany lacquer.
