’60s Banjo Tone for the Modern Age
The Concert Tone Banjo Series presents modern interpretations of the classic Fender Concert Tone banjos of the 1960s. Just like the popular instruments of that decade, today’s Concert Tone banjos are finely crafted for rich sound, smooth playing feel and elegant looks. With remarkable affordability, the Standard Concert Tone 55 Banjo offers many features found on more expensive banjos, such as a rolled brass tone ring, mahogany resonator with gloss sunburst finish and aged white binding with black trim, mahogany rim, Sunburst-finish mahogany neck, and “vintage nouveau” acrylic white pearl inlay work with a “Concert Tone” block inlay at the 18th fret.

Concert Tone™ 55 Banjo

  • Highlights

    Rolled brass tone ring
    Rolled brass tone ring

    The tone ring makes a major contribution to a banjo’s tonal character. This brass tone ring is rolled rather than cast, produces clearly ringing tone with great volume and brightness, and doesn’t weigh a banjo down too heavily.

    Mahogany resonator

    There’s just something about the look of a banjo with a mahogany resonator—it’s so gorgeous that it has to somehow make the music that much more beautiful.

    "Vintage Nouveau" Acrylic Inlays
    "Vintage Nouveau" Acrylic Inlays

    Value meets beauty in elegantly stylized white pearloid and blue green abaloid filigree inlays that impart a touch of stylish sophistication to the fingerboard and headstock of this finely appointed instrument.
