Proclaimed "Best in Show / MUST Stock" instrument at the 2016 Summer NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Show in Nashville, Tennessee, 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:  WITH gig bag! Our superior-sounding 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. Handsome, with its matching black neck, rim, Zero Glide nut and tuner buttons, the AC-1 is professionally set up in Gold Tone's Florida shop.

For optional hard case for this banjo, type HC297 into our website search function.
