Gold Tone BG-250F

For a no frills, straight-ahead bluegrass banjo the BG-250F cannot be beat for quality and tone. The BG-250F is the first professional 5-string banjo in Gold Tone's line. It’s a replica of the most famous banjo ever played in bluegrass music; all of its parts are accurate reproductions of the original. In addition, they have added a maple neck, which brightens the tone compared to the original vintage mahogany neck. Features include a 3-ply Canadian hard rock maple rim, and the straightline tailpiece provides extra downward pressure on the bridge creating even more volume.
