review this product

This banjo is brand new , factory fresh stock and I am selling this great item with free UPS ground shipping anywhere in the Continental US, plus I am selling it at a great low price. Also included with this package at no extra charge is a very nice Profile PT-2900 clip on chromatic tuner and a Lyon guitar polish and string cleaner kit with polishing cloth. These extras are a $37.90 retail value at no extra charge.

This fine instrument is set up, tuned up, and ready to play right out of the case. All Gold Tone instruments are hand set up right here in the US. These are fully set up one at a time and not just "lot inspected" like the big manufacturers do it. This assures that your instrument has a straight neck , great action superb playability, and great tone from day one.

Here are some specs on this great Banjo :

The Gold Tone EBM-5+ is a unique F-style 5-string electric banjo that looks as good as it sounds. The EBM-5+, like a normal banjo, has an extremely fast response allowing hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides to be accomplished with incredible ease. Even unplugged, this electric banjo has an excellent banjo tone due to the hollow sound chamber within the body. The two-tone tobacco sunburst is pleasantly set off by the gold hardware. It has easy to reach control knobs for quick tone and volume changes. This model features a dual pickup design with a hidden humbucking pickup under head and a single coil pickup at neck position. Other features include a Mahog. "F-style" body, ebony fingerboard with snowflake inlays, an 8" banjo head and tone ring, and a Straightline tailpiece. Whether you are new to the banjo or want to add a new sound to your existing arsenal, the EBM-5+ may be just what you are looking for!

The EBM-5+ differs from the standard EBM-5 model in that it features a black head, black tuner buttons and a foam insert under the head that greatly decreases feedback at high volumes. This model is ideal for stage use!

The EBM Pickup System

The EBM is equipped with two pickups; a humbucker under the banjo head in the bridge position, and a stacked humbucker in the neck position. There is a 3-way selector knob that allows the player to switch between the neck pickup only (position up), both the neck and bridge pickup simultaneously (center position), and the bridge pickup only (position down). The three knobs consist of a volume knob for each pickup (2) and a master tone knob (1). Blending between the two pickups utilizing both volume knobs is possible when the 3-way pickup selector is in the center position and both pickups are activated.
