We are proud to be one of the first few acoustic instrument shops to be carrying High Moon Banjos! These old time banjos are lovingly hand-made in the USA by the head luthier at Gold Tone Banjos. This 12" Marble Mountain model features a nice balance of classic and modern design features. The mahogany neck has a very comfortable soft V contour and has a beautifully grained Granadillo scooped fretboard. The custom made Zebrawood and Ebony bridge and Ebony armrest sit atop a black stained renaissance head. This also features a brass tonering on a 12" Ebony capped Maple pot. The tone is quite versatile with plenty of thump, while still maintaining a nice amount of volume and articulation. This also includes a nicely padded Gold Tone branded gig bag.
