Gold Tone Bob Carlin BC-350+ 5-String Open Back Banjo

$1,819.00 $1,364.00

At the 2004 IBMA show, Bob and Wayne met to discuss the possibilities for developing a signature model. Bob wanted a 12Ó pot, scooped fingerboard, specific neck dimensions, and brass tone ring. These features were previously only found on banjos retailing for $1,200 or more. Bob made a trip to Gold Tones Florida factory to help design it. For two days, Wayne and Bob examined every possible spec and tested prototypes and every detail was fine tuned. Because a typical banjo has an 11Ó pot, Gold Tone invested in all new 12Ó tooling at its factory to assure perfectly fitted parts. The BC-350 features an innovative Gold Tone dowel stick/ coordinator rod. The metal rod is inserted inside the dowel stick, which provides superior neck support and allows neck angle adjustments.
