Gold Tone’s innovative instruments
like this banjitar, the new GT-750 deluxe, take center stage. It’s often a Gold Tone banjitar you will see in the hands of live professionals and famous artists. The GT-750 embodies their continuing persuit of excellent Folkternative instruments. It’s got great traditional banjo tone, an excellent electronic pickup system and great looks to grab the crowd’s attention. Its clear head gives it a distinct modern look (which can be changed for you if you prefer) and it’s easy to play. If you play guitar now, the GT-750 is your ticket to instant banjo playing, and an expansion of your musical instincts.
The original GT-500 was received extremely well with musicians, yet designers at Gold tone were still thinking about outdoing themseleves. The GT-750 began with a clean slate to create a banjo with improved volume and tone. As banjo players are well aware, the tone ring is at the heart of a banjo’s timbre. After numerous tone ring experiments, a unique 20 hole bell brass ring was chosen for its pristine sound, increased acoustic volume, and excellent sustain. The exact properties you need to address for the guitar banjo player. Only a few years back, the guitar banjo was considered by traditionalists to be a “cheater” banjo. But today it deserves its own place, and it actually has its own unique sound! The access to notes is naturally different than the five string banjo, and the banjitar has claimed spots in the band with professionals on hit recordings and live performances everywhere. The fact is, it is a banjo. It has six strings, radiused fingerboard, and you can tune it like your guitar and play your guitar chords and leads. It’s a smooth transition for any guitarist, acousic or electric.
In addition to the new tone ring, it features a fully bound curly maple resonator and bound rosewood fingerboard with snowflake inlay. The neck is of a hard rock Canadian maple, a 5/8″ maple rim, it has a natural gloss finish,
