Look no further than this professional level long neck banjo ideal for the folk musician. Tuned 1-1/2 steps lower than a standard 5-string banjo, the WL-250LN is set up for the best singing keys. Specs are equal to the popular Gold Tone WL-250 with the addition of three extra frets allowing the banjo to be tuned to EBEG#B.
The WL-250LN 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 MOP cloud inlays, double adjusting truss rod, vintage heel design, 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 complete setup performed at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida.
