Gold Tone

The BG-250F is the first professional 5 string banjo in our line. It is a vintage replica of the most famous banjo ever played in bluegrass music. All its parts are accurate reproductions of the original. In addition, we have added a maple neck, which brightens tone compared to the original mahogany necks. Features include a 3-ply Canadian maple rim and the straightline tailpiece which provides extra downward pressure on the bridge creating even more volume. 2008 model includes our new GTS planet tuners w/ leather washers. For a no frills, straight ahead bluegrass banjo, the BG-250F cannot be beat for quality and tone.
