Gold Tone WL-250 White Ladye Banjo (2000)
We offer this lightly used Gold Tone WL-250 from c.2000. The White Laydie 250 produces the plunky yet focused tone that's long been a standard for old-time and folk music. This banjo features an accurate replica of the classic three-piece Whyte Laydie tone ring, mated with a half-inch maple rim for maximum air chamber volume. The maple neck has a vintage heel design and a Fairbanks-style headstock shape with planetary tuners. Cloud inlays adorn the bound ebony fretboard. This instrument features an eleven-inch pot sporting 24 brackets and a Fiberskyn type head, and beneath are dual coordinator rods for a solid neck fit and easy adjustments. This instrument is in excellent condition with a straight neck and low action. It appears to be all-original except the prior owner installed a Shubb 5th string sliding Capo with allows the 5th string to be adjusted to match the positions of the regular capo without altering string tension, so tuning is minimized as you change keys.
It comes with its original "Gold Tone" branded TLK hard case.
