At just $289.99, the AC-12FL is the best value in a first fretless banjo. Built on the 12-inch AC-12 pot assembly, it's fitted with a lined fretless fingerboard that's perfect for the first-time fretless banjoist. Now for less than $300.00, you can get those authentic slides and slippery licks that are just right for the early old-time banjo styles that are so popular today without stressing your budget. Strung with Aquila nylgut strings.

The Gold Tone AC-12FL is the latest addition to our ever-more complete lineup of clawhammer banjos. It has everything the new old-time banjo player could want: a generous 1 7/16" string nut width (our ZeroGlide nut comes standard), a separate rosewood fretboard on a nato mahogany neck, an adjustable two-way truss rod with peghead-located adjuster, a durable and great-sounding 12-inch composite rim with coordinator rod for fine action adjustment, a good-looking and functional tailpiece for easy string-changes and proper down-pressure. Ultra-light at just FIVE POUNDS (!!!), this featherweight can save your back while you trudge around the festival grounds. All this and a serviceable gig bag included!
