5 reasons why your next banjo neck should be graphite:
1- Improves tone on any banjo... graphite composition is more consistent than wood fibers and actually promotes tone enhancement.

2- Graphite is impervious to temperature and humidity changes, resulting in incredible neck stability in any climate or weather.

3- Fingerboard levelness is perfect... not a hint of twist! Provides lowest action possible on all strings, without fret buzz.

4- Smoothglide finish, satin finish on back of neck provides effortless left hand motion as you move up and down the neck.

5- Graphite strength! Allows for a thinner neck profile without sacrificing any neck strength. Stays in better tune, and adjustable truss rod works smoothly.

Our replacement graphite neck comes completely fretted, finished, and ready for installation by a qualified banjo luthier. You may also send your pot to Gold Tone for a neck replacement. Your banjo will be returned with a new neck, completely set up with improved tone and the lowest action possible. 
Installing a Graphite Neck
The heel profile is molded for a flat cut. Flat cuts are normally mounted on open-back banjo pots. Most bluegrass banjos require a "flange cut." We can install this cut using Gibson specs for either a once piece flange or tube and plate design. We can not guarantee a perfect fit unless Gold Tone installs the neck. All heel cuts are done using specific jigs (tooling) and are extremely difficult to fit properly by using hand tools. Normal woodworking jigs work fine.

If you want a perfect fit, your pot assembly will need to be sent to Gold Tone. Please indicate your intentions regarding the flat or flange heel cut when you check out.
