Gold Tone B-Stock

We’ve compiled a list of some popular items, as well as some instrument you may want but definitely don’t need at full retail (we’re looking at you Banjo Bass). Please find enclosed a list of Gold Tone instruments that are either factory blems, in-house builds, or factory seconds. We invite you to take advantage of the great savings of up to 40% off!

What you’ll want to know going into the list:

  1. All instruments will be equipped with new strings, and set up for low action and no string buzz. They will be set up by our in-house luthiers.
  2. Most are just small finish blems having no effect on the playability or sound of the instrument.
  3. Unfortunately, because of the killer deal, the customer is responsible for shipping. We will send you a sales order with your shipping quote for review before purchase.
  4. Payments may be CC or PayPal.
  5. Necks that have repaired cracks come with a lifetime warranty on those repairs.
  6. For further info, please contact 1-800-826-5482 or david@goldtone.com.

LS-6*

$539.99

The Gold Tone LS-6 evokes the Oahu Tonemaster, one of the most revered lap steels of the 1950s. Our version is so close to the original that owners of Oahu instruments buy LS-6 pickups and hardware from us for use in the restoration of their prized guitars. The LS-6 is set up for open D tuning (DADF#AD) but other tunings can be accommodated by installing strings that are gauged for those tunings.

CC-Mini^ (quantities available)

$297

The Cripple Creek Mini (CC-Mini) Is just like the phenomenally popular CC-100, only smaller. The same maple neck (but tuned to C, like the fifth fret of a full-sized banjo) and hard rock maple rim (but just eight inches in diameter) make the Mini a perfect travel banjo or the ideal child's instrument for the young picker.

Mandola^ (quantities available) (3)

$594.99

The Mandola, often used in Celtic traditional music, is to the mandolin what the viola is to the violin. The four double courses of strings are usually tuned in fifths to CGDA, a fifth lower than a mandolin, but many other tunings may be used. Our Mandola features authentic Celtic tone and low, comfortable playing action. The cast brass tailpiece is stronger and thicker than sheet metal tailpieces, providing more sustain. This traditionally shaped and finished mandola will complement the sound of any acoustic ensemble.

GM-50+*

$379.99

This solid-top A-style mandolin evokes the hugely popular instruments played by thousands of mandolin enthusiasts in clubs and orchestras during the early twentieth century. The sunburst finish on its curly maple back, sides and neck and on the carved solid spruce top is a tribute to those historic mandolins from the Midwestern US, while the installed transducer pickup prepares it for the demands of a modern musician. The fretboard is bound with white celluloid and the period-correct bridge is adjustable for height. Gold Tone's expert shop setup guarantees that each GM-50+ has excellent tone and playability.

GM-A+* (quantities available)

$525

Pete Langdell, founder and builder of Rigel Mandolin Company, has collaborated with us to offer one of Rigel's most sought after mandolins, the A+ model. The 2010 model includes tops custom made in Vermont by Mr. Langdell which are properly graduated and braced. We send these tops to the best mandolin factory in Korea to complete construction. Gold Tone then does the final assembly and fine tunes all adjustments in the USA.

BG-Mini^ (quantities available)

$629.99

If you teach banjo to kids, or have a child that REALLY wants to get serious about the five-string banjo, you are faced with a problem. Your eight- or ten-year-old is crazy talented, but playing a banjo that's bigger than he or she is can be a hurdle that's very hard to manage. You've perhaps gone the route of the bargain banjo; it's still full-sized and maybe it didn't play or sound that terrific, either. If you want to encourage a little picker, the Gold Tone BG-Mini is the only way to go. The Mini is a for-real, actual Bluegrass banjo that's been scaled down in size to provide pint-sized pickers with a professional-grade banjo. Its design echoes that of Gold Tone's BG-250F and features an eight-inch diameter head sitting on a rolled-brass rod tone ring, a two-way adjustable truss rod, bone nut, planetary tuners, geared fifth-string peg, and a complete pro setup in Gold Tone's Florida shop. The BG-Mini is tuned to open C (like the fifth fret of a standard banjo). This is NOT a novelt

M-Guitar^

$314.99

Our "baby"-style, high quality travel/kid's guitar has patented features for improved playability and tone. The M-Guitar features a pre-installed transducer pickup to give you the ability to plug into an amp, or mixer, giving you great versatility. Our Zero Glide nut system eases tuning, gives open string tone equal to fretted tone, and improves intonation (vital in a short scale instrument!). The ergonomic Glide Top improves comfort for the right forearm and the dovetail neck joint improves vibration transfer for optimal tone. With heavily padded gig bag.

Banjolele DLX^ (quantities available)

The Gold Tone openback Banjolele was our first banjo-uke. We designed it for ukulele players that want more of that sweet uke tone blended with the pop and snap of the banjo. The Banjolele Deluxe is a replica of one of the most famous banjo ukes ever made. The one-piece flange and deep-wall resonator pump the sound forward toward your audience and the arch-top tone ring is perfect for executing the banjo-uke techniques made famous by the legendary British movie and music hall sensation, George Formby.

EBM-5

$1099.99

The Gold Tone EBM-5 is a unique F-style 5-string electric banjo that looks as good as it sounds. The EBM-5, like a normal banjo, has an extremely fast response allowing hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides to be accomplished with incredible ease. Even unplugged, this electric banjo has an excellent banjo tone due to the hollow sound chamber within the body. The two-tone tobacco sunburst is pleasantly set off by the gold hardware. It has easy to reach control knobs for quick tone and volume changes. This model features a dual pickup design with a hidden humbucking pickup under head and a single coil pickup at neck position. Other features include a mahogany "F-style" body, ebony fingerboard with snowflake inlays, an 8" banjo head and tone ring, and a Straightline tailpiece. Whether you are new to the banjo or want to add a new sound to your existing arsenal, the EBM-5 may be just what you are looking for! The EBM is equipped with two pickups; a humbucker under the banjo head in the bridge
