Gold Tone AC-1 5-String Acoustic Composite Open Back Banjo


Durable, lightweight, and affordable, the Gold Tone AC-1 is the ideal banjo for beginners. The AC-1 is made from a durable composite rim with black ABS binding and features an open back design which mellows the tone. This makes for rugged design that's great for younger players as they don't need to be too careful with it, or as a travel option that can hold up to life on the road. Another beginner friendly feature is the slim profile neck which won't get in the way of your playing, even in younger players' hands. The AC-1 also features chrome plated hardware, black tuners and zero glide nut, and comes with a gig bag.
