Case Preference


Looks like an electric guitar, sounds like a banjo! Great for banjo players who need volume through an amplifier. The EBT has an extremely fast response, allowing hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides with extra ease. Includes easy-to-reach control knobs for quick tone and volume change, and a dual-pickup design with a hidden humbucking pickup under the head, and a single-coil pickup at neck position.

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. presents the Gold Tone EBT 5-String Electric Banjo
