Details

Players can't get enough of Gold Tone banjo-ukes! This openback concert-scale instrument is the only banjo uke in the rather large Gold Tone range to come with a factory-installed pickup for easy amplification. It has an eight-inch maple pot crowned with a genuine Remo Fiberskyn head, a hard maple neck, a graceful vintage-style tailpiece, and our patented Zero Glide nut. Also supplied with a padded gig bag!

The only quirk to this instrument worth noting is the Jack socket is on the upperside of the body for a right handed strummer. This is a little unusual and although it doesn't spoil any enjoyment or function; it is worth mentioning.
