About this Banjo

A Gold Tone mainstay for decades, over twenty-five thousand Cripple Creek banjos have been sent into Banjoland to bring happiness to pickers around the world. The CC-100 outclasses all other comparably-priced banjos with its hard maple neck and rim, black-bound real rosewood fretboard (easily re-fretted), dual coordinator rim rods, curly maple headstock veneer, straight-line tailpiece, brass rod tone ring, two-way adjustable truss rod and low, comfortable string action. Completely set up at the Florida Gold Tone factory by our skilled luthiers.

The Plus starts with the CC-110 base but is upgraded with a striking vintage brown finish, a three-ply Canadian maple rim, 24 bracket hooks, a Gold Tone engraved armrest and the same GT Master planetary-geared tuners found on our most expensive banjos. Frosting on already great cake! Available as left-handed model.

Bonuses When You Order From Banjo.com

  • 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.
