A traditional flathead banjo completely faithful to the original '30s models.
The Gold Star GF-100W Mahogany Wreath 5-String Banjo was created to meet the demand among banjo players for what most agree is the ideal bluegrass banjo: the flathead built in very limited quantities during the 1930s. This banjo is a direct descendant of the GF-100 5-String Banjo made to great acclaim in the '70s and '80s. It has a select mahogany neck, bound mahogany resonator with inlaid double concentric rings, a cast bell-bronze tone ring, deluxe 3-ply rock maple rim, double coordinator rods, a single-piece die-cast flange, Presto tailpiece, armrest, and geared planetary tuners with geared fifth peg. Hand-cut mother-of-pearl inlays are laid out in the Wreath pattern on the ebony fingerboard and peghead overlay. All hardware is triple nickel-plated. It is shop adjusted and comes with a deluxe reissue Gold Star hardshell case.
Gold Star took 25 years to improve these already legendary instruments. Make sure you get yours; order today!

Comments about Gold Star GF-100W Mahogany Wreath 5-String Banjo:
I have a Gibson Blackjack and a Deering Calico, both are fine American-made banjos, and this one can hold its own with both of them. It's hard to beat this one for the money. The fit and finish are first-quality and the sound is superb! If you need a professional banjo and don?t have a whole lot of money, check out the Gold Stars!
