The Maple Mountain 150 exemplifies Gold Tone's mission: to give you the best instrument for your money. The MM-150 was Gold Tone's first openback banjo and it still offers features found on many higher-priced banjos for less than you'd expect to pay. The half-inch-thick maple rim carries an authentically-designed Whyte Laydie-style scalloped three-piece brass tone ring under an eleven-inch Remo Renaissance head. Premium parts include a comfortable maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with snowflake inlays and a frailing scoop, vintage Fairbanks-style headstock design, planetary tuners, Vega-style armrest, and No Knot tailpiece. The MM-150 is completely set up at the Gold Tone Factory.3

I purchased one of these last summer and I love it, great quality and sound. The scoop in fingerboard is nice because it gives a mellower tone when you want it. I have 4 Banjos and this is my favorite.
