The Plucky is a backpacker’s dream weighing in at only two pounds! It can be tuned to open C (CGCEG) or open D (DADF#A) or even to standard G, by changing to strings gauged 016, .034, .024, .019, .016. The Gold Tone Plucky is no toy; the neck width is similar to that of a full-size banjo for comfortable fingering and its low string action provides effortless playability. It’s perfect for a young player, to pack for the trail, or for just cuddling up with on the couch. The Plucky is set up at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida, just like its bigger brethren. A carrying bag is included.
We inspect each and every instrument we ship out for maximum playability. We adjust the action and adjust intonation when needed. If you would like a specific adjustment, just add it to your order notes and we would be happy to adjust to your liking.
