For sale is a beautiful Gold Tone Bluegrass Special (BG250f) resonator banjo with case included and a few neat upgrades. Most notably, the outer finish on the back of the neck has been professionally removed, allowing for easier slides without sticking to your palm. Railroad spike capos have also been added for the 5th string allowing for easy jamming, and the bridge and tailpiece have been upgraded.
This banjo features the following:
- Bell brass tone ring with bright sound ideal for bluegrass picking
- 3-ply Canadian maple rim
- ebony fretboard with inlaid mother of pearl
- GT Master Planetary tuners
- Included Gold Tone hard case
I purchased this instrument used about 5 years ago to learn on and have taken extremely good care of it. It served me well, but I've transitioned to more clawhammer tunes and prefer an open back now. It seems a shame to have such a beautiful instrument sit unused, so it's time to pass it along to new hands. This banjo would be fantastic for someone looking to learn bluegrass/scruggs or an experienced musician wanting a bright new sound for their collection. Personally I've found that the customizations, while subtle, really added to my playing.
Sells for $1,022 new. You can check out the full specs for a new one here: goldtonemusicgroup.com/goldton...s/bg-250f
