Gold Tone CC-100RW Wide Neck Banjo

Includes Free Heavy Padded Bag and Free 5 Piece Beginner Package

Notes from Ross Nickerson on the CC100RW Wide Banjo with factory built wider nut width

Now a beginner Banjo with wider than standard neck for the same price. This is an excellent option for those who feel they may have trouble playing banjo because of large or long fingers.

New 2022: Planetary Tuners Now Standard on CC-100RW - $89 Value

This gives new banjo students another option, for those needing just that extra bit of fingerboard, (1 3/8” vs. 1 3/16”…. I will not make you do the math, it is 3/16” wider) Check any competitive banjo in this price range and you'll find more bang for the buck with the Gold Tone Cripple Creek Models.

Features include, wider maple neck, (dimensions below), maple body, neck and resonator binding, double coordinator rods, curly maple headstock veneer, Straight Line tailpiece, brass tone ring, 2 way adjustable truss rod, and low action for the beginning banjoist. Available as a lefty, and with many other options such as planetary tuners, capo spikes.

If you are getting into playing the banjo... get it and learn it from Ross!
I decided I wanted to try and learn some bluegrass banjo. Cold I googled around and found Ross' website...thank goodness I did. I had questions: called in and Ross himself called me back promptly...he walked me thru and helped me figure out some of the "extras" which would allow me to use my "beginner" Gold Tone CC-100RW for years to come w/out having to modify/upsell (for ex, getting the planetary tuning pegs up front). I also customized some portions of this beginner kit which Ross made happen with no questions asked, even making sure I took advantage of an existing discount on his Platinum lifetime membership he had elsewhere on his website. I really feel Ross gave me a great deal...when the banjo got to my house I took it out and could play it right out of the box as well.I'm just a month or so into learning from Ross' instruction materials and I'm only memorizing my 2nd roll but I'm loving it. Thanks Ross!

Unmatched service
I been buying fretted instruments for 46 years. I have never gotten an instrument with a better setup; it plays flawlessly. It was even still in tune when I opened the case. And, as everyone on Banjohangout will tell you, the extras Ross includes are things you will actually use. Kudos all around.
