Gold Star Banjos: GF-100W ” Wreath “

Starting in the late ’70s, Saga introduced its Gold Star line of banjos. At the time, the major American manufacturer (who shall remain unnamed!) was going through some serious quality issues in their banjo line while Gold Star was actually improving on the traditional designs of the elusive ‘Pre-War originals’! The Gold Star flange and tension hoop alloys were upgraded to avoid the impurities and metal fatigue of the originals and their vintage style 20 hole flathead tone ring was the envy of the industry!
