Gold Tone's Orange Blossom (OB) banjos pay homage to the pre-WWII banjos played by Earl Scruggs. The OB-250 features a sand-cast flathead brass tone ring, a cast metal flange and a maple neck with a two-way adjustable truss rod. The ebony fretboard is exquisitely inlayed and is accented with curly maple binding, Improvements on the vintage theme include a straight-pull tailpiece, metric threads (for finer tension adjustment) and a slightly deeper resonator, giving more air volume for increased low-end resonance.
