I can't keep my hands off it.
Howdy, I just wanted to say that I very satisfied and delighted with your services. I received my Gold Tone CB-100 Wednesday in Healdsburg California and I can't keep my hands off it. Y'all were VERY helpful in the decision making and also thanks for the added extras. I will pass your good work along to as many as I know who care to listen. Keep up the good work and I plan on doing business with you on down the line. Now...back to practice.

Bravo, Gold Tone.
The case deal is the icing on the cake. There was even a clip-on tuner included--a nice surprise. The quality, playability, and tone of a $1500+ banjo IS possible at the $600 mark! This tells me the top-end Gold Tones must be phenomenal. Bravo, Gold Tone. I'm from Merritt Island, Florida, and knowing this banjo is made just up the coast from there is a lovely thing too. Thank you!

It is WAY higher quality than I expected.
Ross, The CB 100 arrived yesterday. It is WAY higher quality than I expected. The setup was *spot on* and it was playable right out of the box...really close to perfect tuning. I put a Fret Rocker on the neck; the frets are *perfect* … I build guitars and am very picky about everything.
