Entry level banjos must be designed for easy learning. The Cripple Creek CC-50 is just that! The CC-50 model is where the Gold Tone full-size banjo line begins. This model is among our top sellers as they are specifically designed to play perfectly, sound great, and be affordable. The openback design featured in this model is ideal for the “old time” banjo style of playing. Other features include a hard maple neck and maple rim, guitar-style tuners, a geared 5th string tuner, single coordinator rod, Straightline tailpiece, rosewood fingerboard, and a rolled brass tone ring. With a complete setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida, the CC-50 is the perfect model for the entry level banjo player. The CC-50 includes a light-duty gig bag for easy transport.

For an economy 5 string, the CC-50 outshines the competition. Our 12 point set up ensures accurate intonation, easy fingering, and good tone.
