Check out the open back review by the Banjo Newsletter!

Gold Tone's most popular openback ever! The design provides a plunky but punchy tone well-suited for old timey and folk music. A White Ladye three part tone ring is coupled with a 1/2" rim. Most competitors use a common 3/4" bluegrass rim and our 1/2" rim provides more air chamber volume. Other features include ebony fingerboard, vintage cut heel, no-knot tailpiece, and double adjusting truss rod. The latest model also includes a free fingerboard scoop which previously was only an option.


Features include ebony fingerboard, cloud position markers, vine headstock inlay, Straight Line tailpiece, reversible two way truss rod, body and neck binding, maple neck and double coordinator rods finished in a rich mahogany lacquer.

I use the banjo at home.
ONLY HAD IT A WEEK OR SO BUT SOUNDS AND PLAYS OK for a mass produced Chinese banjo.
Looks ok but not realy classy for the price
