Goldtone OB-500 Gold Plated Banjo

The Gold Tone OB-500 was discontinued in 2007 but the OB-300 Gold Plated Banjo with tree of life inlay is still available. The only difference between the two is the hardware on the OB-500 had etched engraving.
The OB-300 has everything else the same in look, wood, tone ring and gold hardware used, and for quite a bit less in cost.

Here is a link to the Gold Tone OB-300
OB-300 Gold Plated Banjo - Tree of Life Inlay

Personally designed by owner Wayne Rogers it has all the features of our OB250+ in an exquisite banjo which will prove to be a collectors edition. Elaborate engraving, gold plated, radiused fingerboard, modified tree of life inlay, maple/abalone neck and body binding, sophisticated resonator inlay. highly flamed neck, 3 layer wood inlay on back of headstock.
