Overview

Open back excellence for classic tone and vibe.

Gold Tone’s most popular open back banjo, the White Ladye WL-250 provides a plunky, yet punchy, tone well-suited for old-time and folk music. This model features an accurate replica of the vintage and highly sought after 3-part White Ladye tone ring coupled with a 1/2" rim for maximum air chamber volume. Other features include a maple neck and bound ebony fingerboard with cloud inlays and frailing scoop, double adjusting truss rod, vintage heel design, Fairbanks-style headstock shape, GT Master planetary tuners, 11" Renaissance head, no-knot tailpiece, and dual coordinator rods for a solid neck fit and easy adjustment capabilities.  Final assembly and a complete setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida.
