Enter our free giveaway for your chance to win a new Cripple Creek Bob Carlin banjo from our friends at Gold Tone!

A huge value in a twelve-inch clawhammer banjo, the CC-Carlin12 has all the right stuff: a nut width of 1-3/8", a two-way truss rod in the maple neck, scooped black-bound fretboard with dot inlays, and a three-ply maple rim. Set up by Gold Tone's luthiers to play perfectly right out of the included gig bag!
