1986 Gold Star GF-85 “blue label” built in Tokai, Japan.

This GF-85 has a mahogany neck and resonator, Leaves and Bows inlays, AMB frosted head, Robin Smith Timeless 5/8’ SS bridge, and Presto tailpiece. There are 5th string spikes 7-10. The frets are new and show zero wear. The rim was turned providing the correct “slip fit” for the tone ring. The banjo came alive and sounds great. The neck does have a few scuffs marks in the lacquer finish. The area on the rear of the peg head, appears to me, to be just in the finish and not into the wood (pic attached). The neck feels good and plays amazing. The banjo comes with the original case.

Not interested in any trades. If the ad is up, the banjo is still available.
