The BG-250F was the first professional level 5 string banjo in the Goldtone line. It is a vintage replica of the most famous banjo ever played in bluegrass music and all its parts are accurate reproductions of the original. In addition, Goldtone 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. This model includes the new GTS planet tuners with leather washers. For a no frills, straight ahead bluegrass banjo, the BG-250F cannot be beaten for quality and tone.
