The model number of this exciting new low-tuned 5-string banjo by Béla Fleck is Gold Tone ML-100.
Wayne Rogers of Gold Tone says, “It’s been a fun time exploring all the tonal possibilities with Bela over the last few months. We’ve been through 4 prototypes and now 4 more all with different parts for him to continue testing until we reach perfection.”
The Missing Link fills the void between the frequencies of a normal 5 string and cello banjo, with the tuning dropped to cGCEG. The strings are wound metal. Gauges: .18 .22 .25 .36 .18
The neck on “The Missing Link” is radiused to Béla Fleck’s exact specifications. The pot assembly is a 12″ rim with rolled brass tone ring, Renaissance head and specially-designed resonator.
