The Old Tone 800 Long Neck (0T-800LN) is the ultimate longneck banjo. This tubaphone style longneck is tuned 1 1/2 steps lower for the best singing keys. A great folk style banjo, it closely resembles Mr. Seegers famous plunky tone, a sound desired by songsters. The engraved inlay is set off by the ebony fingerboard and the pot includes a bracket band for a loud sustaining tone.
The Gold Tone 0T-800 incorporates a fitted metal bracket band to an 11” maple rim in which the shoe lugs bolt directly to the bracket band instead of the wood rim allowing for a more solid tone and increased sustain. The 32-hole brass Tubaphone-style tone ring allows the sound to ring loud and clear with maximum sustain. Improvements to the original classic design include dual coordinator rods (instead of a dowel stick) for a solid neck fit and easy adjustment capabilities. Other features include a maple neck with bound ebony fingerboard with frailing scoop, a classic engraved fingerboard inlay design, a Fairbanks-style headstock, 11” Renaissance banjo head, and a No Knot tailpiece.
