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.
