Notes from Ross Nickerson on the BC 350 models from Goldtone.
This is the new Bob Carlin signature model BC 350 Plus. Look at the quality and attention to detail on this. This is every bit like an expensive custom built model that should cost in the $4000 or $5000 range. Very Impressed. Wayne's done it again, They are really "hands on" at Goldtone and know what they want, and what they're doing. Ross N
At the 2004 IBMA show, Bob Carlin and Wayne met to discuss the possibilities of a signature model 12" banjo. The basic features requested by Bob were a 12" pot, scooped fingerboard, specific neck dimensions and brass tone ring. These features where previously only found on a banjo retailing for $1200 or above. Bob personally made a trip to our Florida factory for the designing. For two days, Wayne and Bob discussed every possible spec and tested prototypes. Every detail was fine tuned. In order to complete the project, Gold Tone would invest in all new 12" tooling (a significant expense) to assure perfectly fitted parts. A year later we introduced.... the Gold Tone Bob Carlin Signature Model BC-350!

...my Banjo arrived today, in perfect condition. It took so little time to reach me, I'm amazed! Thank you so much for your assistance with my purchase. I will be recommending you to anyone I know in Australia (or elsewhere) who is interested in purchasing a fine instrument at a very reasonable price...
