About this Banjo

The CC-100R is a newbie player’s dream come true. It is the only modestly-priced full-featured banjo that comes with a maple neck with a two-way adjustable truss rod and separate rosewood fretboard, a hard-rock maple rim with twin coordinator rods, and it’s CONVERTIBLE! The natural-blonde finished CC-100R has a resonator that’s easily removed for true openback playing, helping new players become comfortable with different playing styles with just one banjo. Gold Tone’s superb factory setup in Florida further adds to the CC-100R’s value.

The Plus has all of the CC-100R’s features but has a vintage-style high-gloss sunburst finish, and is upgraded with Gold Tone GT Master planetary tuning machines, an engraved arm rest and twenty-four tension hooks. Available as left-handed model.

  • 5th String Railroad Spike Capos – FREE
    We can add these as a free service when you purchase a banjo from us. When you add this banjo to your cart just select that you want the capos. What is this? When you use a standard capo on your banjo fretboard, fretting strings 1 through 4, you’ll need to capo the 5th string separately. The 5th string starts at the 5th fret. If your standard capo is on the 2nd fret, you also need to capo the 5th string two frets higher, at the 7th fret. We recommend installing railroad spike capos on frets 7 and 9 (A and B). We install them on the fretboard just under the 5th string, an idea that was developed and used by Earl Scruggs himself. We use them, and so do most of the professional players we know. When you’re playing, you don’t really notice the spikes because they’re out of the way, but they’re always there when you need them. Simply slide the 5th string under the spike. When you’re done, slide it out.
  • Bluegrass or Clawhammer Starter Pack – FREE
    We can send along with your banjo a Bluegrass or Clawhammer Starter Pack for free. This includes a strap, DVD, and tuner and picks.
