Breaking News

The Gold Star GF-100W (Wreath) has been reissued in 2018

I just received news that Gold Star has unveiled the newest version of the GF 100-W Wreath. The Wreath pattern is based on the Wreath inlay design of the 1930's Gibson Mastertones. This Wreath design has always been one of the most popular with Gold Star banjos and I am so glad to have these back in production.  The GF 100-W has the same tone components and construction as the new GF100-JD banjo released in 2017.

It's basically the same banjo with a different inlay pattern and peghead design. The Gold Star GF100-JD is a fantastic new banjo so this will be the same with just a different look.

Description Gold Star The new GF-100W represents one of the finest examples of a prewar-inspired, five-string flathead resonator banjo; often considered the "Classic" bluegrass banjo. Legendary musicians the likes of J.D. Crowe, Sonny Osborne, and Rudy Lyle rank among the most notable pickers to establish the prewar “Wreath” patterned banjo from the 1930s as THE unmistakable flathead sound. By painstakingly studying every detail of original examples, Gold Star has achieved perfection in this exciting new 5-string added to the line. The one-piece, bound mahogany neck with a lightweight, single-way truss rod is comfortable to play and feels just like the original; while the 20-hole sand-cast tone ring, perfectly turned hard rock maple rim, and a bound mahogany resonator with dual concentric rings, combined; provide the perfect platform to create all the volume, drive and tone any player would need! So for that classic Bluegrass sound and an instrument that stepped right out of the 1930’s, without the high price tag.
