Gold Tone Mastertone™ OB-2 Gold Engraved Bowtie Banjo with Case
This is a gorgeous “one of kind” gold plated and engraved OB2 Bowtie Banjo! This one was built to demonstrate the gold/engraved hardware and it looked so good we figured we’ve got to make it available for someone to own!
The only current production model Bowtie banjo in this class! Over a year in the making, the Gold Tone OB-2 is based upon the renowned and unique Gibson "Bowtie,” a 1960’s model Mastertone with a 19 hole tone-ring flathead tonering. Authentic Bowtie Mastertone appointments such as the bottle shape headstock, signature bowtie inlay, concentric resonator rings, and that authentic era correct sunburst finish against the deep gold plating make this banjo an absolute show stopper!
Each one will be personally and professionally setup prior to shipping. And the sound on these is so good. The tone is crisp and bell like, as one would expect from a Mastertone spec banjo, but there’s also a bass response and richness found in this model that isn’t often found in many banjos at this price point!
Gold Tone has done an outstanding job with quality control and consistency! And since we introduced the Twanger along with Gold Tone a few years ago, they have really been making a splash in the bluegrass banjo world. This is a great continuation in that lineage.
