Most banjo players agree that the ideal bluegrass banjo was the Gibson flathead built in very limited quantities during the 1930s. To meet this demand and to offer it at a price any player could afford, Saga Musical Instruments introduced the original GF-100 banjo in the early 1970s. Ever since these banjos were discontinued in the late 1980s due to costly manufacturing methods in Japan, they have continued to be topics of discussion for their legendary sound and value. Now Gold Star GF-100HF (Hearts & Flowers) is back and better than ever before! A nice interpretation of the past, the GF-100HF features a cast 20 hole Bell Bronze tone ring - cut from the Gibson cloth. A nice loud, and punchy tone, this is a fantastic way to own a new instrument that has an impressive old sound. Complimented by the thin 3 ply Maple rim, it has a nice detail in the melody strings. The rosewood board, complete with the rare Granada style "Hearts and Flowers" inlay pattern. A Presto tailpiece and Gotoh tuners round out this nicely priced instrument. Original brown hardshell case is included!
