Notes from Ross Nickerson on the Goldtone OB 300

Below are some pictures of an OB 300 before shipping. They are casual shots and there are lights in reflection in the background etc. but you can still see how incredible the OB 300 is. The Orange Blossom OB 300 s a gold plated bluegrass banjo and features mother of pearl tree of life inlay.
I'm super impressed with this banjo. Look at how much you get with the banjo, not to mention the price and free items we include.
After seeing and playing this banjo you would never be able to guess the price.
Ross Nickerson

This gold-plated beauty has all the spec wanted on a high-end profession banjo. It has a curly maple neck and matching curly maple/abalone binding combine for a highly decorative 5-string. The sand-cast bell bronze tone ring is used in only the best banjos and provides a loud penetrating tone. A unique abalone/pearl truss rod cover matches the exquisite inlay throughout the banjo.
The OB-300 uses the modified tree of life inlay on the fingerboard so the banjo player can easily deter- mine the fret positions. Notice the fingerboard has flowers on the landmark fret positions and only vines on other positions. Simple but effective, and only the player knows the difference!

This gold plated beauty has all of the elegant features found on banjos well into the $10,000 range. A curly maple neck and matching curly maple binding combine for a most decorative 5 string. The sand cast bronze tone ring is used in only the best of banjos and provides a loud and penetrating tone. A unique truss rod cover matches the exquisite inlay throughout the banjo.

With a detailed setup at the Gold Tone Factory, this banjo will play and sound worlds above the price you would actually pay for it.
