OB-250LW: Orange Blossom Banjo Light Weight with Case

Tone Rim
3-Ply Canadian Maple Rim
GT Master Planetary Tuners
Hearts & Flowers Inlay

Want to lose four pounds and still play a banjo with traditional beauty and great tone? This Orange Blossom model, rather than employing a brass tone ring, features a "tone rim". The high-quality multi-ply maple rim is machined into the shape of a flat head tone ring, but its all-wood design puts your OB-250 on a diet. If you're troubled with neck or shoulder fatigue during those long parking lot jams, THIS is your banjo. All other OB-250 features are here, including curly maple binding on the maple neck and resonator, GT-Master planetary tuners, hearts & flowers inlay, one-piece curly maple veneer on the resonator, a gorgeous new tobacco-brown finish and a super setup done right here at the Florida Gold Tone shop. Available as left-handed model.
