About This Listing

In the late 1970s Saga Musical Instruments made banjo history with the introduction of the Gold Star Banjo. These instruments were the first production banjos since the 1930s to be manufactured with the combination of a three-ply maple rim and a single piece flange. Perfect for folk and bluegrass with a clear and punchy sound.

This banjo has a mahogany resonator, one-piece armrest and nickel hardware. The neck is also made from mahogany and has a rosewood fretboard with mother-of-pearl inlay. The white binding can be found on each side of the neck and resonator. The Banjo is very clean, has some wear to the frets but is still very playable, there is on ding to the side, where some of the lacquer is checked, some of th metal oxidated lighty, two tuners are upgraded to Schaller, otherwise it's very clean.  Includes hard case, TFOA passport and spare saddle.
