Wow!!!!!!!! Hi Ross! I picked up my new OB 250+ today.I'm so impressed. I guess new owners are a little prejudiced, but I gotta tell ya, this has got to be one of - if not the most beautiful banjo ever!!!!!!!!!! And it sounds so great!!!!! It is absolutely one of the best buys I have ever made. I know I sound like a silly kid, but it was much more than I expected, and I expected a perfect instrument in every way.
........Ross, I recently received my left-handed, gold- plated OB250 plus 5-string banjo and I must say that it is absolutely beautiful...The tone. clarity, volume and craftmanship was much more than I expected. I have received many favorable comments from other pickers. I want to thank for processing this special order in a timely fashion and my hats off to you!!! Jim Quick, OKC, OK
Goldtone has taken their celebrated OB-250 and improved it dramatically by adding many unique features reserved for only the highest-quality banjos. Upgraded features include the JLS tone ring, 3-ply maple rim, coordinator rod adjuster, Brian Hooper Intonated Custom Bridge, a raised neck to body mount, and a deluxe case.
The JLS Tone Ring is a replica of the Gibson tone ring used in the Granada models in the 30’s. The maker, from Texas, has analyzed an original tone ring and duplicated the exact specifications. When electronically tested for pitch, sustain, and ring, it equals the original. It also has a slightly longer “skirt” which (1) provides more contact with wood rim and (2) provides direct contact with the heel of the neck. The neck is attached with a conventional hanger bolt going through a hole at the edge of the tone ring. This method provides an extremely tight fit and maximum heel contact with tone ring.
OB-250 Plus with JLS Tone Ring- Includes FREE SHIPPING, HARD CASE, ELECTRONIC TUNER , PLATINUM LIFETIME ACCESS TO MEMBERS LESSON SITE and 5 ROSS NICKERSON DVDS,
