The Gold Tone EBT is a unique 5-string electric banjo that is traditionally styled for the “country-look” with a similar tone to the popular Gold Tone EBM. The EBT, like a normal banjo, has an extremely fast response allowing hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides to be accomplished with incredible ease. Even unplugged, this electric 5-string has an excellent banjo tone due to the hollow sound chamber within the body. The tobacco sunburst curly maple top is pleasantly set off by the gold hardware. It has easy to reach control knobs for quick tone and volume changes. This model features a dual pickup design with a hidden humbucking pickup under head and a single coil pickup at neck position. Other features include a mahogany “F-style” body, ebony fingerboard with snowflake inlays, an 8″ banjo head and tone ring, and a Straightline tailpiece. Whether you are new to the banjo or want to add a new sound to your existing arsenal, the EBM may be just what you are looking for.
