Vintage Gold Star gf-100 w/ Yates Rim
Price: $1,500.00 USD
This is a nice vintage Gold Star - I believe an '84.
The original rim (and label) has been replaced by Warren Yates with one of his rims. Warren professionally assembled this banjo as well as putting a speed finish on the neck. The neck feels really great in particular - it has a great profile to it.
There is some "character" to this banjo - some patina, a small crack on the reso side-wall, slight wear on the arm-rest, and some slight signs of fret-wear.
Overall it is a great player. With the fairly recent set-up it plays very good; the rim has been very well fit, the fret-board and inlays are very clean - it is a fine example of the quality of the vintage Gold Stars. It is very much everything you could want in a mahogany flat-head banjo.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
