Overview

Like its cousin the AC-1 (proclaimed "Best in Show / MUST Stock" instrument at the 2016 Summer NAMM Show in Nashville, Tennessee), the Gold Tone AC-4 Composite Tenor Banjo is an economical, durable and great-sounding beginner instrument. Designed for the tenor banjoist, it comes at a great price and includes a gig bag.

The AC-4  features Gold Tone's snappy-sounding composite rim mated to a slim and easy-playing neck that's equipped with Gold Tone's patented Zero Glide nut. The AC-4 weighs in at less than four pounds and is the perfect choice for beginners, for travel use or for a child's first banjo. The handsome AC-4, with its matching black rim, neck and tuner buttons is professionally set up in Gold Tone's Florida shop and comes with a three-year transferable warranty.
