We offer this amazing Orange Blossom by Gold Tone that has been a floor model in our shop. We customized it with a Golden Gate sliding 5th string capo and set it up for stage play as a way of showing our customers just how good a Gold Tone banjo can play and sound. This one rivals the most expensive models in the country at a fraction of the price, and aside from a few small dings and scratches and a little meaningless wear to the frosted head, it is otherwise pristine, but we are offering it at a great price reduction. Basically a great instrument waiting for its first owner. Comes with hard shell case
The Orange Blossom (OB) banjos harken back to Gold Tone's early days and their popularity hasn't diminished over the decades. These professional-grade banjos evoke the great pre-WW ll banjos played by the Masters: Earl Scruggs, Don Reno, J.D. Crow all depended on those great banjos from the Midwest USA to power their sound. The OB-250 has everything needed to produce THAT tone: a sand-cast bell brass flathead tone ring, a cast one-piece resonator flange circling a multi-ply maple rim with twin coordinator rods and an extra-deep curly maple multi-ply resonator for better low-end response. The curly maple neck has a bound ebony fretboard with hearts & flowers inlay. The bracket hooks even have metric threading to enable finer tension adjustment.
Features and specs include: wood bindings, Ebony fretboard, multi ply Maple Resonator, 26 3/16ths scale length, two-way adjustable truss rod, bell brass tone ring, weight 12.2 lbs.
