Gold Tone’s original openback is great for a sweet frailing or clawhammer tone.

The Maple Mountain 150 (MM-150) is a perfect example of Gold Tone’s “more bang for the buck” concept.  This openback banjo model is a professional quality instrument offing many of the same features found on much higher priced instruments and packs an unreal tone for its low cost.  For a sweet frailing or clawhammer tone, the MM-150 is our original open back and has been very well received.  This model features an accurate replica of the vintage and highly sought after 3-part White Ladye tone ring coupled with a 1/2″ rim for maximum air chamber volume.  Other features include a maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with ‘snowflake’ inlays and a frailing scoop, vintage Friabanks-style headstock design, planetary tuners, 11” Renaissance head, Vega-style armrest, and No Knot tailpiece.  Final assembly and complete setup performed at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida.
