Mastertone™ OB-3: Orange Blossom "Twanger" Pre-War Style Resonator Banjo with Case

In late 2018, "Banjo Ben" Clark, Jake Stogdill, and Robby Boone had a concept for replicating one of the most iconic banjos, played by the one of the most iconic banjo players of all time, JD Crowe's original RB-3 ("Banger"). After extensive research, and with great attention to every detail, Gold Tone was able to rebirth this classic banjo. What makes this banjo truly unique is its "No Hole" tone ring, which really tightens up the sustain. It also features the original measurements on the headstock, neck and body, nickel plated hardware, slanted resonator walls, vintage inlay, a Presto tailpiece, concentric resonator rings, and a brown mahogany finish. Gold Tone has designed hundreds of banjos in the last 25 years, but tone-wise, this outperforms every previous model. Includes an archtop hardshell case, lifetime transferrable warranty, and can optionally be ordered with capo spikes, pickup, Zero Glide upgraded nut, or as a left-handed model.
