The brass Tubaphone style tone ring rings loud and clear with maximum sustain. Classic style ngraved inlays, maple neck and rim, adjustable coordinator rods (instead of a dowel stick), and our new Fairbanks style headstock.

...HI Ross, just want to let you know the banjo arrived today in excellent condition, very happy with the set up and sound of the banjo. Thanks for all your help and prompt service. Regards Paul.

On a Long Neck Banjo, the 5th string peg is actually located at the 8th fret, not the 5th fret, and tuned to E not G.

This makes the most common frets for capo spikes on a long neck: 11 for the key of G, 13 for A and 15 for B. Since the long neck is positioned at the 8th fret and tuned to E, it's up 3 for G, up 5 for A, up 7 for B.

Even though I prefer or normally recommend the capo spikes over the 5th string sliding capo on a standard length 5-string banjo, the sliding 5th string capos can be pretty practical on a long neck, you can put that anywhere for any key or tuning configuration. We can install those too.

Both are listed in the options below.

The tone is absolutely perfect
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.

wonderful instrument.
The OT-800 LN 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.
