The “Irish Traditional” banjo from Gold Tone. It has a 11” x 9/16” stained maple rim with a “White Lady” style tone ring and heavy chrome plated metalwork - 24 brackets and a cast "New Kerschner" tailpiece. The plating is excellently done. Fitted with a frosted Remo head. The stained maple neck is quite slim with a bound ebony fingerboard with attractive position inlays. The scale length is just about 20” with 17 frets. Modern banjo fretting, very well executed and hand-dressed for an excellent playing surface. The action is set-up low but is adjustable as required. Fitted with good quality planetary tuners. Finished in clear lacquer, very nicely done.
This banjo is very nicely built and produces a pleasant, mellow tone. For those requiring a loud “session” instrument with plenty of “cut”, this probably isn‘t the most appropriate model in the Gold Tone range - look at the SS250-F model instead.
