A modern high grade banjo from Gold Tone. It has an 11” x ¾” thick 3-ply maple rim with a heavy cast flat top tone ring, cast one-piece flange & heavy-duty chrome-plated metalwork - 24 tensioners and a cast “New Kerschner” tailpiece. The plating is very good. Fitted with a Remo or 5-Star head. The truss rodded maple neck is quite slim with a cream bound rosewood fingerboard and “Hearts & Flowers” position markers. The scale length is 20” with 17 frets. Modern banjo fretting, very nicely done and hand-dressed for an excellent playing surface. The action is set-up low but is adjustable as required. Fitted with good quality vintage style planetary banjo tuners. The neck is finished in clear gloss lacquer which matches the body & resonator very well - the finish is very good. The resonator is the standard convex type and the flange is cast one-piece type - a very rigid style of construction indeed.
Overall, this banjo is very well built and good value for money. It has a very bright, clear, loud tone suitable for either Irish or Jazz tuning. A very good tenor banjo with an amazing “cut” to it - would suit a player of any standard.
