The Gold Tone EBM-5 is a unique F-style 5-string electric banjo that looks as good as it sounds. The EBM-5 is equipped with two pickups: a humbucker under the banjo head in the bridge position and a “T-Style” single-coil in the neck position. Unplugged, the EBM-5 has impressive banjo tone due to the hollow sound chamber within the body and the 8″ banjo head (with a real tone ring to boot!). When you plug it in, that just means natural, banjo resonance translates through the electric signal. Unlike other electric banjos—which are essentially electric guitars with banjo necks—this one retains authentic banjo tone throughout. Overall, this instrument is a great option for banjo players looking to expand their musical palette with a wide variety of electric tones.
This 2014 Gold Tone EBM-5 is gently used and in excellent condition all-around. It shows some signs of play and use, and it has one small ding on the back, near the input jack (pictured). It includes a deluxe hardshell case.
