Economically priced, the Maple Classic MC-150R/P is the first model in the Gold Tone line that offers a 20-hole flat top tone ring.

A considerable upgraded model from the Cripple Creek Series, the Maple Classic MC-150R/P features a thicker maple tone rim, maple neck with snowflake inlay, maple resonator, shoe style lugs, an alloy tone ring, two way adjustable truss rod, Straight Line tailpiece, and a beautiful gloss finish. This model is convertible which means the resonator may be easily detached for playing in an open back style. The MC-150R/p just recently received a rave review from a popular folk magazine in England which described its incredible tone for the price.  With a complete setup here at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida, the MC-150 just cannot be beat in its price range for quality and tone.

The Maple Classic is also available in kit form for the do-it-yourself craftsman! See the MC-Kit.
