About this banjo
The sweet sustained tone of the Gold Tone Dojo is so right for expressive fills and emotional solo play. The cutaway mahogany body has beautiful decorative bindings and carries a comfortable five-string banjo neck with planetary-gear tuners and a rosewood fretboard that any banjoist will feel at home on. The parallel-pull tailpiece exerts even pressure on the biscuit bridge atop the reverse-cone resonator for even tonal response. Expand your sound horizon with a Dojo.

*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.
