Gold Star GF-100FE Professional 5-String Resonator Banjo – Flying Eagle Inlay
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, Saga 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. Now Gold Star GF-100FE (Flying Eagle) is back and better than ever before!
