Bob Carlin and Wayne met to discuss the possibilities of a signature model 12" banjo. The basic features requested by Bob were a 12" pot, scooped fingerboard, specific neck dimensions and brass tone ring. These features where previously only found on a banjo retailing for $1200 or above. Bob personally made a trip to our Florida factory for the designing. For two days, Wayne and Bob discussed every possible spec and tested prototypes. Every detail was fine tuned. In order to complete the project, Gold Tone would invest in all new 12" tooling (a significant expense) to assure perfectly fitted parts. A year later we now present.... the Gold Tone Bob Carlin Signature Model BC-350!
