GoldTone BG 250 F Gibson style BlueGrass 5 string Banjo
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-02-08)
Price : US $455.00
IMPORTANT: PLEASE DO NOT confuse the Gold Tone BG-250 with THIS BG-250F The F is an upgraded version.. The 250F is a full size gibson replica with larger resonator, better tone ring, and rim. As such, it retails about $100 more.
I purchased this banjo from a fella who NEVER played it.. it had some dust on it, but otherwise was new.. this was in june of last year.. This is my 3rd banjo, and I play my other gold tone 95% of the time, because it's lightweight, and quiet (for my wifes bleeding ears) LOL
So, this banjo might have 20 hours on it.. It shows some minor fret wear. No chips, nicks, skuffs etc.. only defect is that the flange chrome is not perfect... very minor texture changes on it.. NO chipping of the chrome plating.. think it came that way. (see included pic) If you told someone it was new, they'd believe you.. And it plays real purdy as it is set up in the pics... It really was good before the upgrades, but I love to tweak out my banjos.. :)
UPGRADES Include the shubb 5th string capo, and 5 star head.. I also have cryo strings installed. all as pictured.
This is a GREAT intermediate banjo...
