Gold Tone brings back the high-quality, low-priced beginner Bluegrass banjo! The AC-5 combines full-range sound, super playability and outstanding durability at a price ANYONE can afford. The sound is due in no small measure to the AC-5's modern composite shell. This strong, resonant material is light in weight but high in stiffness and trouble-free. Coupled with the maple resonator back, the AC-5 produces a punchy fourth-string bark and clear ringing high notes. You can't find a better first banjo, child's banjo or travel banjo than the Gold Tone AC-5. The price includes a one-year warranty and a padded gig bag, too! Available as left-handed model.
