Gold Tone OB-150EF “Extra Fret” 5-String Banjo With Case

Monthly payments available Learn more

Same great and beloved OB-150, but redesigned to have 24 frets for extra range!  This slight redesign of the scale length allows higher notes to be played while smoothing out the higher register tone at the same time, and making the banjo overall a bit warmer sounding.  This is done by having the same scale length, but lengthening the neck to accommodate for the extra scale notes and moving the bridge closer to the middle of the banjo head for a mellower tone.  

We are really impressed with this banjo!  It sports all the features of the banjos which fetch the big bucks while also having some unique appointments such as a wider flat board neck.  It’s the only banjo like it in it’s price range and it fills that void perfectly!

This Bluegrass banjo utilizes a three-ply maple rim, one-piece flange, sand cast bell brass tonering, style three type inlays, double cut peghead, smooth satin finish, and a comfortable fingerboard for very natural finger placement while playing. The OB-150 is professionally set up and comes with an unheard of TRANSFERABLE lifetime warranty!  Also includes Hardshell Case, free 5th string spike installation, and free shipping within the lower 48 US!
