Gold Tone BG-250FW Mahogany Wide-Nut 5-String Bluegrass Banjo

A professional grade, full featured bluegrass banjo with a wider fingerboard for folks with bigger hands or who prefer more space between the strings.  We also love that darker tobacco sunburst on this one!

The BG-250FW is a fully professional-spec Bluegrass banjo; Featuring Gold Tone's bell-brass tone ring and die-cast brass one-piece flange, the BG-250FW has a bound select wood fretboard (with tasteful snowflake inlays) a maple neck with planetary tuning machines and a hard-rock maple rim for brighter tone. The straight-line tailpiece provides equal down-pressure for all strings for more balanced playing response.

The BG-250FW is identical to the BG-250F in every way except that the fretboard width at the nut is increased to 1 and 5/16". This extra 1/8" in width is great for players with larger fingers and also appeals to those pickers that play a lot of single-string (Reno, jazz or Celtic) style banjo. Available also as left-handed model upon request.

Ships Free, with full professional setup and free 5th string spike installation!
