Gold Tone "Plucky" 5 String Traveler Banjo

Gold Tone Plucky

A true backpacker weighing in at only 2 lbs., the Plucky can be tuned in C or D. The neck width is similar to a full-size banjo for ease of fingering. It has low string action and plenty of volume. It’s perfect for the very young child, on the trail, or cuddling up with on the couch. Set up perfectly at our shop just like “the big boys.” Includes gigbag.

If you are playing with others and need to tune to standard G, the string gauges may be changed to the following: .016, .034, .024, .019, .016. Includes a carrying bag.
