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 is an economical, durable and great-sounding beginner banjo. Designed for the irish tenor banjoist. The AC-4 features our 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 our THREE YEAR transferable warranty. Also available as a tenor banjo.
