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. Case not included.
