      Comments about Gold Tone CC Banjitar:

      I wanted to add a little twang to my recordings so I read all the reviews that I could find. A common complaint that I read about the CC Banjitar was it's weight (yes it's heavier than most), but it's a well built instrument. My complaint is that it arrived today, and while I'm happy with it's structure and tone, Gold Tone's QUALITY CONTROL stinks. On top of the resonator in the wood ring is a discolored white spot where the resonator was dinged after the stain was applied but before the varnish was sprayed on. Of course it had to be on the top of the instrument where everyone can see it. I feel like I paid full price for a factory second. QUALITY CONTROL was sleeping on the job. Thanks GOLD TONE for nothing.

      Gold Tone gone downhill

      By Gregory Hayward

      from Arco ID

      Comments about Gold Tone CC Banjitar:

      1. Gold Tone and Musicians' Friend should indicate that this banjo is made from aluminum and then let the consumer make an informed choice.
      2. Country of manufacture should be plainly stated. This is the only Chinese instrument I have and I do not like purchasing something that turns out to be something else. A little honesty is in order.
      Gold Tone used to make banjo's that brought back memories of a simpler time, now they make banjo's in China, made from aluminum. The sound is a bit tinny as a metal banjo might be expected to sound. This banio is also very heavy compared to a good wood banjo and I tired quickly from playing it.
      I guess the quality is OK for an aluminum Chinese banjo, but not what I expected from Gold Tone.
      The $500 spent was not a bank breaker, but I should have spent another $200 or so and got a wood, American made, banjo.

      Right out of the box , all set up was to my liking.All I had to do was tune it up and I was on my way. The finish is great. It is heavy, so you know it is well made, and I love the sound.All I have to say is get you one!!!

      Have played several of these hybrids and this is my favorite. Stays in tune, good action right out of the box. Can't beat it for the money.

      Goldtone CC Banjitar

      By RHRET

      from Minnesota

      Comments about Gold Tone CC Banjitar:

      Wanted a Banjo sound but did not want to learn to play banjo. The Goldtone CC Banjitar does have a banjo sound. It sounds best with a pic and finger pics. New techniques I, learn can be used when playing my guitar. This CC banjitar stays in tune. the action from the first fret to the fith fret is low from the 6th fret up the action is higher than I like but strings are easy to push down and sound is nice and clear. I, will not adjust the action because the way it is set up from the factory the tonation is right on and I, do not want to mess that up. I, like this insterment and think it sounds better than my frinds 5 string banjo that is in this price range.

      This one's a beauty

      By Bobtec

      from Redlands, CA

      Comments about Gold Tone CC Banjitar:

      It has a really nice mahogany look. Not glossy but natural. The feel is real nice. Plays like a dream. Truss rod & intonation right out of the box is great. You can use plain acoustic guitar strings as long as the ball end is hollow in the middle of the ball (Martin & D'Addario both has).Like a Bigsby, the tail piece has 6 posts. the hollow part of the ball will fit in those posts. Considering that I've played guitar for over 40 years, and played banjo for less than 6 months, this feels pretty good. Don't get me wrong. For good old claw hammer bluegrass, I'll use my 5 string. But for everything else (and guitar playing friends that want the banjo effect while I play mandolin), this is great.
