Gold Tone AC-1  -  Composite 5-String Openback Banjo

The Gold Tone AC-1 sets the bar for an affordable, great-sounding beginner banjo. Constructed with a durable composite, open-back rim, this well-made, full-size banjo come in at less than 4 pounds!

The AC-1 is the perfect choice for beginners or travel. The open-back design makes it a little quieter (a plus for first-time players—trust us!). It also features a nato neck with rosewood fretboard and Gold Tone’s Zero Glide nut for improved tuning and tone. The AC-1 comes with a 3-year warranty and a gig bag is included.

By the way, this clever little guy won "Best in Show” at the 2016 Summer NAMM (Natl. Assoc. of Music Merchants) Show. So you don’t have to take our word for it—it’s really that good.
