Never before has an entry level openback banjo included the features and tone of our CC-100OB. Check any competitive banjo in this price range and you’ll find "more bang for the buck" with Gold Tones Cripple Creek.

Features include maple neck and body, neck and resonator binding, double coordinator rods, curly maple headstock veneer, Straight Line tailpiece, brass tone ring, 2 way adjustable truss rod, and low action for the beginning banjoist.

Want railroad spikes? We install HO-gauge railroad spikes free when you purchase a banjo from us. We recommend installing them on frets 7 and 9 (A and B). This serves as a capo for 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. If you want spikes, let us know in the comments box at checkout.

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.
