The GT-500 6-string banjo is tuned like a guitar. Guitar players can pick up this instrument and begin playing immediately. There's no learning curve! The GT-500 is traditionally styled with a maple rim, maple resonator, maple neck and a rosewood radiused fingerboard. The unique Gold Tone SMP pick-up accenuates the bass notes and provides piercing banjo-style treble. This model has excellent acoustic volume and good sustain.

Also with excellent unplugged acoustic volume and good sustain, this is Gold Tone's original banjitar. This model is exactly like the GT-750 except uses a steel tone ring (instead of brass) and a plain maple resonator (instead of curly maple). Bruce Springsteen bought two of these for his 2007 European solo tour!

Note: Our banjos are individually inspected, set up and tuned by the staff in Georgia. We are banjo players, so we set them up the way we want to play them! Each banjo is in tune when we carefully pack it for shipment. Climate conditions and travel will affect the tuning, so it may need to be fine-tuned before playing.
