Cox Carolina, Gold plated, number C.008
Per the Cox website, re the Carolina:
"The Cox Carolina is an all-maple banjo with a distinctive tone. Hand-selected, Northern curly maple is used for the neck and resonator, and the resonator features a warm sunburst staining pattern.
This is the only banjo made that incorporates the innovative Cox Carolina tonering. Some have said that this banjo has the pre-war sound pickers are looking for, in a brand-new instrument."
This is an excellent banjo. I have added a pickup which is easily removed, and added 2 Keith D tuners. The original tuners I have kept so again this can be swapped back if wished. These are the only modifications apart from several bridge swap outs.
