Overview

Well-built entry-level banjo with full-walled resonator.

Entry-level banjos must be designed for easy learning, and the Cripple Creek 50 with Resonator and guitar-style tuners is just that. Gold Tone has taken their popular CC-50 model and added a full-walled resonator to suit the beginning bluegrass banjo player. Features include a hard maple neck and rim, a convertible mahogany resonator, a geared 5th string tuner, single coordinator rod, Straightline tailpiece, rosewood fingerboard, and a brass tone ring. Completely setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida.

The CC-BG includes a light-duty gig bag for easy transport.
