Signature banjo of Béla Fleck, modeled after his "Number 1" banjo.

The Gold Tone Mastertone "Bluegrass Heart" Béla Fleck Signature banjo is designed to be as close as possible to the sound and feel of his "Number 1" instrument, a 1937 Style 75 Mastertone. The finest components available are used to optimize the sound and the playing experience, with a Prucha Presto tailpiece, Rickard Cyclone 10:1 tuning machines (with custom, red-anodized brass buttons for added peghead mass), custom bridge and Little Mountain armrest all doing their part to enhance tuning ease and stability, full-bodied tone and playing comfort.
