Goldtone "Twanger" OB-3 Prewar

Tax included Shipped in 24/48hrs

Replica of JD Crowe's original RB-3 ("Banger"). After extensive research, and with great attention to every detail, Gold Tone was able to rebirth this classic banjo. What makes this banjo truly unique is its "No Hole" tone ring, which really tightens up the sustain. It also features the original measurements on the headstock, neck and body, nickel plated hardware, slanted resonator walls, vintage inlay, a Presto tailpiece, concentric resonator rings, and a brown mahogany finish.
