Gold Star Model GF-100W Pro Banjo with Wreath Inlays (5 String)

$2,395.00 $2,035.75

Most banjo players agree that the ideal bluegrass banjo was the flathead built in very limited quantities during the 1930’s. To meet this demand and to offer it at a price any player could afford, Saga Musical Instruments introduced the original GF-100 banjo in the early 1970’s. Ever since these banjos were discontinued in the late 1980’s due to costly manufacturing methods in Japan, they have continued to be topics of discussion for their legendary sound and value. It’s 2005 and the new Gold Star GF-100W (Wreath) is back and better than ever before. Each instrument has that same great tone that banjos players like Tom Adams are looking for.
