A dandy of a banjo! It sure does have that special tone reminiscent of those original Gold Stars and older Gibson’s.
A very nice recreation of the Gibson Style 3 Wreath model! The new Gold Star GF-100W Mahogany Wreath 5-String Banjo was created to meet the demand among banjo players for what most agree is an 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 and has all the right appointments! Just a great looking, feeling, and sounding banjo!
