More than twenty-five thousand Cripple Creek banjos have been sent into banjoland bringing unbridled joy and happiness to pickers around the world. A Gold Tone mainstay for decades, the CC-100 (O) Cripple Creek Open Back banjo easily outclasses other comparably-priced banjos.
It’s modest price doesn’t indicate it but this beauty features a multi-ply Maple Rim with a Brass Rod Tone Ring, a hard Maple neck with a black-bound Hardwood fretboard, elegant snowflake inlays and a curly maple headstock face.
Other top-line features include dual coordinator rim rods, a straight-line tailpiece and two-way adjustable truss rod.
The Gold Tone Cripple Creek Banjo features an initial set up at the Florida Gold Tone factory by their skilled luthiers. To complete the perfect banjo playing experience, we also include our Pro-SCM setup. The fret ends are rolled and frets polished, fingerboard oiled and nut slots cut to the optimum depths and everything else adjusted to ensure a low and comfortable string action.
We also carry a comprehensive range of Banjo accessories including:
• Gig Bags and Cases
• Banjo Straps
• Fingerpicks and Thumbpicks
