Gold Tone OB-250LW Light Weight 5-String Banjo With Case

Looking to lose about 4 pounds without going on a diet?  Well now you can, all while having a banjo that produces great bluegrass tone and drive!

This Orange Blossom model, rather than employing a brass tone ring, features a "tone rim" which is similar to a wooden tonering as seen in some much more expensive banjos.  The high-quality multi-ply maple rim is machined into the shape of a flat head tone ring, but its all-wood design shaves a few pounds off your OB-250.  So if you struggle with neck or shoulder fatigue during those long parking lot jams, THIS is your banjo.  All other OB-250 features are here, including curly maple binding on the maple neck and resonator, GT-Master planetary tuners, hearts & flowers inlay, one-piece curly maple veneer on the resonator, a gorgeous new tobacco-brown finish.  

Includes Professional Setup, 5th String Spike Installation, Hardshell Case, Lifetime Warranty, and Free Shipping!
