Gold Tone CB 100 openback
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-04-28)
Price : US $275.00
This is a Gold Tone CB-100 openback banjo built to be a real clawhammer player with the scooped fretboard, Fiberskyn head and no knot tail piece. I changed out the tuners so better quality 5 star planetary tuning pegs are now installed. I also changed to a Renaissance head but you get to have both in case you ever want to experiment with the sound. I also changed the no knot to a Waverly type tailpiece but I am also including the no knot if you want to change back. I've got a new set of medium weight strings installed. The banjo comes with a really plush Gold Tone gig bag and I'm adding one of my extra Shubb capos. There is an imperfection on the outside of the pot that I was able to capture with the camera in one of the photos. This was repaired by Gold Tone and does not effect the playability. Flat fee for shipping only to the continental USA of $22.50.
Here's the description taken from the Gold Tone site:
''For 12 years Gold Tone has easily proved the best value in beginner
to pro level openbacks. Playability, tone and quality designs are our
trademark. The CB-100 was created to meet the demands of the modern
old-time player. It's lightweight minimalist design yields nothing but
effortless playability. Entry price with all the features of a
high end. A scooped fingerboard, brass rod tone ring, and vintage neck
design makes this banjo a great value. It is also lightweight for
traveling or practicing''. These banjos are going for around $500. I've got another $140 into it for the 5 star tuners and renaissance head (that I paid a luthier to install for me).
