Gold Star GE-1 Old Time Prospector Openback Banjo
The Gold Star Prospector is built in the tradition of banjos from the late 1800s, with a singular combination of traditional design, tone and contemporary ease of playability.
The 1/2 inch rim of the banjo consists of two 1/4 inch layers 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. It also sports an authentic bulb style heel on the neck.
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 the instrument.
11” fiberskyn head and removable rolled nickel armrest.
