The Plucky is a backpacker's dream weighing in at only two pounds! It can be tuned to open C (CGCEG) or open D (DADF#A) or even to standard G, by changing to strings gauged 014, .030, .024, .016, .014. The Gold Tone Plucky is no toy; the neck width is similar to that of a full-size banjo for comfortable fingering and its low string action provides effortless playability. It's perfect for a young player, to pack for the trail, or for just cuddling up with on the couch. The Plucky is set up at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida, just like its bigger brethren. A carrying bag is included. Available as left-handed model.
