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-4IT is an economical, durable and great-sounding beginner banjo. Designed for the Irish tenor banjoist, it has a street price of just $ 244.99 WITH a gig bag. The AC-4IT 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-4IT 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-4IT, with its matching black rim, neck and tuner buttons is professionally set up in Gold Tone's Florida shop and comes with Gold Tone's THREE YEAR transferable warranty.
