Gold Tone was founded in 1993 by Wayne and Robyn Rogers, who were active folk musicians and instrument builders in Florida. Today Gold Tone are one of the biggest and best value banjo producers out there with a huge range of awesome instruments on offer! The GoldTone CC-50RP is a fantastic choice for anyone who wants to start playing bluegrass banjo. This model features a hard maple neck and rim, a mahogany resonator finished in a beautiful vintage burst satin, a rosewood fingerboard, and a rolled brass tone ring. These quality materials and components produce a bright and punchy sound that will cut through any jam session.
The CC-50RP also has some great features that make it easy to play and keep in tune. It has planetary tuners, which look traditional but are smoother, more precise and a lot more reliable than traditional friction tuners. The drone string has a quality geared tuner. This banjo is also well specced with a Gold Tone Straightline tailpiece, which provides stable string tension and great tone transfer, and a single coordinator rod, which lets you adjust the action and the angle of the neck to suit your preference. As well as all this, the CC-50RP is a versatile banjo that can be converted to an openback style by removing the resonator and the mounting brackets. This gives you the option to explore different styles of playing, such as clawhammer, folk etc, without buying another instrument!
This fantastic value banjo would make a very high quality starter instrument or a great step up for intermediate players. It’s in near mind condition and shows next to no signs of wear other than some very light scratches here and there which are visible in the light on the matte satin finish. It also comes with a Gold Tone carry bag. If you’d like to give it a try then call in to Finale Guitar between 10-5 any day except Wednesday, or check out now to arrange affordable postage anywhere in the UK.
