TB-250: A-Scale Traveler Banjo

Folkternative Design
White Ladye Tone Ring
GT Master Planetary Tuners
1/2" Maple Rim

Due to the tremendous response of our original travel banjo, the Travel Banjo 250 (TB-250) is our premier "A-scale" banjo with many features of the best banjo models. This banjo includes a short scale neck (we've eliminated the first two frets) and intended to be tuned a whole step above a standard 5-string to the key of A (AEAC#E). The TB-250 may also be tuned to standard G-tuning (GDGBD) by using a set of medium gauge banjo strings.

It includes gold plated hardware, a White Ladye tone ring, an 11" Remo Fiberskyn head, bound ebony fingerboard with Hearts & Flower inlay design, notched tension hoop, Straightline tailpiece, curly maple resonator, and a complete setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida. This beautiful piece is definitely one model to pass down to future generations. Available as left-handed model.
