Most banjo players agree that the ideal bluegrass banjo was the flathead built in very limited quantities during the 1930's. To meet this demand and to offer it at a price any player could afford, SagaŽ Musical Instruments introduced the original GF-100 banjo in the early 1970's. Ever since these banjos were discontinued in the late 1980's due to costly manufacturing methods in Japan, they have continued to be topics of discussion for their legendary sound and value. It's 2005 and the new Gold StarŽ GF-100FE (Flying Eagle) is back and better than ever before. With close to 25 years to improve these already legendary instruments, we are sure you will agree that these banjos are the best value available on the market today!
Comes with a Deluxe re-issue Gold Star hardshell case!
