 Product Description

For over 15 years, Gold Tone has easily proved the best value in beginner to professional level openback banjos. Playability, tone, and quality designs are our trademark. The CB-100 was created to meet the demands of the modern old-time player. This banjo is lightweight with a minimalist design that yields nothing but effortless playability and a traditional tone that just begs to be played. At an entry level price with all the features of a high end openback, the CB-100 includes a maple neck with a scooped rosewood fingerboard, rolled brass tone ring, a vintage neck design, Fiberskyn head, planetary tuners, and a No Knot tailpiece. Final assembly and complete setup performed at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida.


The CB-100 features a unique Gold Tone designed faux dowel stick in which a coordinator rod is threaded through the dowel to allow for action adjustments. If you have every owned a tradional dowel stick banjo, you will agree this feature is infinitely superior without loosing that classic apeal!

Every instrument receives a 12 point set-up and is thoroughly inspected before shipment. This takes additional time before shipping but insures that your instrument will be received without any flaws or issues and will be ready to play right out of the box!
