For sale is my Gold Tone OB-250+ Limited Edition resonator banjo with extreme curly maple (very good++ condition). According to Wayne Rogers at the Gold Tone Group, they only made 12 of these particular blonde/honey tone banjos, mid-2000s. This one has an excellent and strong tone up and down the neck. If you notice, the fret board is mounted at a higher level, similar to the design on Stealth banjos. A higher mount results in lower action with more room for vibration across the head.
This banjo has several standard features: extreme curly maple, 3-ply Canadian maple rim, and very good quality metal parts. It is fully equipped with the JLS-12 tone ring that is well-known for its excellent sound and response. Standard Gold Tone hard case is in great shape, a little dusty perhaps, and is included. There is some slight metal patina beginning to take place but nothing drastic.
Improvements that I added: New 5-Star tuners, Desert Rose bridge, and a Fults tailpiece. In addition, I reworked the peg head design (sanded off old design, applied new decals, & finished) to something that I liked; however, there is room to prep and glue on an overlay since I just sanded off the old one and finished.
This is a really nice instrument and will make someone a great banjo. Thanks for looking, ask anything you wish.
