Notes from Ross Nickerson on the CC 50 models from Goldtone.Lots of customers called to ask me the main difference between the Goldtone Cripple Creek 50 models and the Cripple Creek 100 models. Let me try to boil it down to simpler terms and try to help you make a more informed decision. Some of the primary differences are; the body of the CC 50 models are made of mahogany which makes the banjo a bit quieter. It also has a single adjustable truss rod. The 100 models have a two way adjustable truss rod, are slightly heavier and may feel a bit sturdier. That being said, these are still top quality banjos to learn on, they stay in tune, play easy, they're stable and have a geared 5th string peg. I've taught many students who have learned on these banjos with much success along with lots of satisfied customers at BanjoTeacher.com. The 100 models cost a bit more and are a step up but these 50 models hold their own and offer an excellent lower price option. . Ross Nickerson
