Gold Star GE-1 Prospector Old-Time Banjo

(1 customer review)


Patented No-Knot Tailpiece

SKU: GE-1 Category: Tag:


Great Musical Instruments offers for sale The Gold Star Prospector built in the tradition of banjos from the late 1800s, with a singular combination of traditional design, tone and contemporary playability.

The 1/2 inch rim of the banjo consists of two 1/4 inch plies of rock maple that form a firm vibration base for the warm tonal characteristics required for the old-time banjo styles. The “frailing-scoop” allows the player to access the warm tone found in the area just outside the confines of the banjo head.

The addition of sturdy but light-weight neck reinforcement and coordinator rod assures the structural stability of the neck and rim without a negative impact on the balance or appearance of this instrument.

    I recently ordered a new Gold Star prospector banjo and was delighted with not only the product, but also the price and customer service. The banjo was shipped set up and on time. I find myself playing this banjo more than other more expensive banjo’s I own. Great product and great company to order from.
