Gold Tone EB-5 5-string Electric Banjo: A Blend of Tradition and Innovation

Gold Tone successfully bridges the gap between banjos and electric string instruments with the EB-5, a true 5-string electric banjo. Its solid mahogany body, complemented by a Canadian maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard, produces a balanced and resonant output, remaining rich even at higher volumes and during more aggressive play. With Gold Tone's proprietary Terminator tailpiece and Zero Glide nut, your tones stay in tune, while the 8-inch custom Remo pre-tuned head enhances tuning stability and contributes to the EB-5’s unique sound. The banjo also features a stacked humbucker that accurately captures the iconic banjo twang without succumbing to feedback, making it a favorite among Americana enthusiasts.

Key Features:
  • Solid Mahogany Body: Delivers rich harmonics with a balanced sonic anchor emphasizing midrange frequencies.
  • Canadian Maple Neck: Brightens your tone while providing fantastic note separation.
  • Rosewood Fingerboard: Imparts a shimmering veneer to your sound that emphasizes warmth without compromising articulation.
  • Custom-developed 8-inch Remo PTS Head: Enhances tuning stability and imparts a solid, articulate tone.
  • Stacked Humbucking Pickup: Faithfully captures the nuances of banjo twang and is incredibly resistant to feedback.
  • Terminator Tailpiece: Provides high-performance and vintage-inspired but enhanced for modern durability and performance.
  • Zero Glide Nut: Complemented by an ebony-capped maple tailpiece and GT Planetary tuning machines, it ensures your tones are buzz-free and in-tune.
