the Gold Tone AC-1 sets the bar for an economical, well-made, great-sounding and durable beginner banjo. No other maker on the planet offers so much to the novice banjoist for so little. Gold Tone’s composite rim mated to a slim, playable neck, produces a banjo that weighs less than four pounds. The AC-1 is the perfect choice for beginners, travel use or for a child’s first banjo.
