Gold Tone Banjos: OB-250 Sunburst

With features such as sandcast bell brass flathead tone ring, one-piece zinc-alloy flange, 3-ply maple rim, bound ebony fingerboard with Hearts & Flowers inlays, planetary tuners and two way truss rod , the OB-250 from Gold Tone definitely is a front runner for best banjo in its class!

This banjo is essentially a reproduction of the classic flathead Bluegrass banjos of the ’40s and has been the flagship of Gold Tone Banjos for over a decade!

Cosmetics include the newly upgraded one-piece flamed maple veneered resonator, two-toned brown sunburst, genuine mother of pearl headstock inlay, and hearts and flower neck inlay.

The OB-250 is endorsed by bluegrass legend Frank Wakefield!
