The Gold Star GE-1 Prospector is inspired by the banjos of the late 1800s as made by builders like Dobson and Buckbee. It has a 1⁄2 inch rim made of two 1⁄4 inch plies of rock maple and a mahogany neck with the rounded bulb heel that was common in the 1880s. The end of the fretboard has a “frailing-scoop” which allows the player to access the warmer tone found further away from the bridge. The square, guitar-style headstock is another callback to the late 19th century. The GE-1 Prospector is a well-made, easy playing clawhammer banjo with a clear, ringing tone that won’t break the bank.

Acoustic guitars, mandolins, and banjos are still the mainstays at Gryphon, as they have been for over 45 years, though our inventory of steel guitars and ukuleles continues to grow as well. In recent years an important part of our growth has been in instruments by very small companies and individual makers, as we continue to keep one foot, or at least several toes, outside the mainstream music industry.
