This Gold Tone 5-string Cello banjo is a great instrument and very fun to play. It's in great condition with very few signs of wear. There is a K&K pickup installed for plugging into a sound system. The banjo comes with a case that has some minor scuffs. The handle on the case had to be replaced (by Gold Tone) and the replacement is worn. The material the handles are made with seems to wear easy.
Here is information on the banjo from Gold Tone:
Endowing the legions of five-string banjoists with a new and compelling voice to add to their music, the mighty CEB-5's fourteen-inch pot (the largest banjo pot in production today by any maker) with a custom Remo Renaissance head and custom-designed high-tension wound nylon strings on a custom bridge pushes out gut-rumbling lowdown banjo mojo. Tuned a full octave below any of the standard five-string banjo's many tunings, the CEB-5 looks as great as it sounds. The Canadian maple neck is finished in rich sunburst and the tastefully-bound peghead and ebony fretboard as well as the heel cap are fully bound. Play the Big Five under an Old Time ensemble to add a bass feel, play Scruggs-style three-finger rolls for an added dimension to Bluegrass or Newgrass styles or play the CEB-5 clawhammer-style (HUGE fun). Includes hard shell case.
