Gold Tone OT-800 Long Neck

New product

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.

Features: Neck - Maple Double Coordinator Rods Fingerboard - Ebony Bridge - Maple/Ebony Cap Compensated Wood Finish - Vintage Mahogany Headstock Inlay - Star w/ Engraving Neck Binding - Creme Celluloid

It was a pleasure dealing with you

Ross, I received the GoldTone OT-800 Long Neck a few days ago. It's terrific and exactly what I wanted. The tone is absolutely perfect, as is the action. I used to own a Vega long-neck Seeger model that was stolen decades ago, and always wanted to replace it. I didn't want to spend the 3-$4000 that they now cost at Deering and other sites that sell old Vega models. This Gold Tone is a top of the line instrument that has the old time sound and a rich, robust sound that can't be beat. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a folk or old time banjo and doesn't want a flimsy instrument. It was a pleasure dealing with you. And those trailing finger picks you sell are also phenomenal. They're better than anything else I've come across.

It is exactly what I was hoping for

The OT-800 Long Neck arrived yesterday -- everything else had arrived a few days before. It is exactly what I was hoping for -- wonderful instrument. Thank you for recommending it. Also (as you would already guess) the BanjoTeacher.com leather strap you sent is very good -- very well made, solid, fits like a harness (a good thing) and holds the instrument perfectly. Again -- many thanks. Wonderful instrument, arrived on time, in one piece, ready to play, and with a beautiful sound. I am passing the CC-100+ to my son, who is a better musician than I am. I expect him to pick it up quickly and to be back to you for another upgrade in another six months or so.
