The new Gold Star GF-100W (Wreath) is back and better than ever before.
The ideal bluegrass banjo was the flathead built in very limited quantities during the 1930's.
Saga Musical Instruments introduced the original GF-100 banjo in the early 1970's to meet this demand and to offer it at a price any player could afford. Discontinued in the late 1980's due to costly manufacturing methods in Japan, they have continued to be discussed for their legendary sound and value. In 2005 the new Gold Star GF-100W (Wreath)is back and better than ever before.
That same great tone that banjos players like Tom Adams are looking for.
