The BG-250F is the first professional 5 string banjo in our line. It is a vintage replica of the most famous banjo ever played in bluegrass music. All its parts are accurate reproductions of the original. In addition, we have added a maple neck, which brightens tone compared to the original mahogany necks. Features include a 3-ply Canadian maple rim and the straightline tailpiece which provides extra downward pressure on the bridge creating even more volume. 2008 model includes our new GTS planet tuners w/ leather washers. For a no frills, straight ahead bluegrass banjo, the BG-250F cannot be beat for quality and tone.
Superb Quality and amazing piercing tone at a great price make the Gold Tone BG-250F a "Bluegrass Special."

Gibson RB-250 vs. Gold Tone BG-250F
The Gibson RB-250 was the workhouse of the Gibson Mastertone Line in the 1950s to now. It produces the most sought after bluegrass tone - loud, sustaining, and punchy. The Gold Tone BG-250F replicates many all of the same parts, most of which are interchangeable. Our assembly procedures equal the tight-fitting parts of the RB-250. As you view the chart, you will notice that the BG-250F actually has some advanced benefits. Gold Tone's theme has always been "More Bang for the Buck".You can now own a professional comparable banjo for less than 1/3 of the Gibson price!
