Customer reviews for the Goldtone Archtop OB 250 Archtop ....

This banjo has a beautiful ring to it, and when I play melodies I can really make the melody notes "pop" with this banjo. This banjo came from the factory with as near a perfect setup as a person could ask for: the truss was adjusted to the "gnats ass", and the neck angle and head tension was there also! This banjo and I have been doing some bonding since I got it six weks ago. I really enjoy playing it!
