Gives 5-string banjo players an opportunity to make new music with a whole new sound and is excellent for practicing your banjo quieter too. It has a pleasing sustaining sound and is more forgiving of mistakes than your average bluegrass banjo.
With the neck of a 5-string banjo and the body of a mandolin, the Gold Tone Banjola has a sonic personality all of its own.
Featuring a standard 5-string banjo neck and the body of a mandolin (or mandola), the Gold Tone Banjola is a beautiful instrument with exquisite tone and sustain that you won't find in a standard 5-string banjo.
The solid spruce top is paired up with visually and tonally appealing curly stained maple for the back & sides to deliver a bright and beautifully resonant voice that's unlike any other banjo you have ever heard. A vintage brown finish and celluloid binding caters to the traditional vibe. The 26-1/2"-scale neck is carved from maple and topped with a rosewood fingerboard that features medium frets and dot/shooting star inlays. The headstock comes equipped with a set of planetary tuners and showcases a shooting star inlay to complement the fingerboard. Other features include a floating ebony bridge, a bone nut and a chrome-plated mandolin tailpiece.
