Gold Star is one of the most popular brands that came out of Japan in the 1970’s and 1980’s. They are still being made today in China. This banjo will compete with professional quality banjos and would be a SUPERIOR banjo to many American Made Banjos of the same era.
This has a thick maple shell and a mahogany neck and resonator. The fretboard is rosewood with a Hearts and Flowers inlay. There is white binding on each side of the neck and resonator. The hardware is either nickel or chrome, I think nickel, is all original and includes a one piece flange and 20 hole tone ring. This banjo has some strong power and volume and sounds great. This also includes the original hardshell case.
This is in good shape and has been professionally cleaned at the Banjo Warehouse. The banjo has been disassembled and all of the hardware buffed and the metal looks great. The finish has cloudiness in it which comes through in the pics. There is something that looks like fog in the finish. Regardless the finish has been waxed and that looks really good. This does have some fret wear but no buzzing. The fretboard is in good shape and has been cleaned and oiled. The original case is in good shape inside and out with no structural issues.
This has been set up at the Banjo Warehouse. The head is a new Remo frosted head and is set to 90. The bridge is set with correct intonation. The strings are new Hubers and this is a fantastic player. This banjo is an extraordinary value on a strong banjo and is set up and ready to go!
