Béla showing Juno the Missing Link banjo

Inspired by John Hartford’s love for low-tuned banjo, Bela Fleck conceived the Missing Link, Baritone Banjo.

Bela’s previous experience with the Gold Tone Cello Banjo brought him to Wayne Rogers.  The two collaborated in the design and, after many months of experimentation and various challenges, we are ecstatic to present the ML-1!

Béla Fleck’s Missing Link baritone banjo, along with the entire line of Gold Tone instruments, are available at Paul Roberts’ website BanjoCrazy.com. Paul Roberts is a multi-instrumentalist who is affiliated with Gold Tone as a retailer, independent product specialist and consultant.
