This Gold Tone model has the essentials for good bluegrass tone, namely a thick 3-ply maple shell topped with a bell-brass tone ring. Almost zero fret wear, about the only sign of it being used is some slight tarnishing of the plating on the tension hoop and resonator flange. Nice TKL arched lid hardshell case (similar to the TKL case Gibson supplied with their Mastertone models several years ago). It all adds up to quite a bargain for under $600.
