OVERVIEW

For that old school Americana sound and feel.

Gold Tone's BG-150F is a midline, full-size, bluegrass banjo with features typical of their pro models. This would also be an excellent instrument for players looking for a lighter weight bluegrass banjo. This instrument is the next step above their Cripple Creek models and uses a one-piece flat flange and has a full-size 14″ resonator.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about Gold Tone BG-150F Bluegrass Banjo:

    Very well made, wasn't a Gold Tone believer but really am now. I don't like the crack of maple on maple (resonator and rim) and the mahogany resonator mellows that out. It is beautifully made and has very nice inlay work. Arrived completely setup by Gold Tone and it was right on. Only had to tune the strings.
