Gold Tone BG150F Bluegrass 5-String

The Gold Tone BG-150F offers the classic appearance of the great pre-WW ll banjos at a much more affordable price. Features include a multi-ply maple rim, 14” resonator with vintage brown finish, and fully-bound neck with the traditional hearts-and-flowers fretboard inlay.

In an effort to reduce the weight and increase the comfort of the BG-150F, Gold Tone uses a quarter-inch brass-rod tone ring (compared to the nearly 3-pound bell brass ring in their similar BG-250F). The difference in sound quality and power is negligible, but your shoulder will notice the difference!
