Gold Star Banjo GF-100JD J.D. Crowe New

Photo for Ad 165598

The GF-100JD, the newest addition to the Gold Star line, is based on the prewar RB-3 that J.D. Crowe used on the legendary The Bluegrass Album with Tony Rice, Bobby Hicks, Doyle Lawson and Todd Phillips. Saga, the parent company of Gold Star, spent five years working on recreating that classic bluegrass tone and this banjo is the happy result of that effort. Like the original banjo, this instrument features a mahogany neck and resonator, a 3-ply maple rim and a no-hole cast tone ring. Includes a hardshell case.

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.
