This is a very nice 1979 Gold Star archtop from Japan. As many of you know theses early Gold Stars are very nice Mastertone clones with excellent craftsmanship. And more importantly it sounds great. I switched to clawhammer and now prefer an open back. A nice OME, ODE, Vega or Deering long with tone ring and truss rod would be ideal.

Bump with price reduction. This banjo sounds great so if you’re looking for a killer bluegrass banjo at a modest price this is it. As most of you know these early Gold Stars are not the same as the newer China made versions. I’m the 2nd owner and this one has soul.

Bump. Don’t buy the banjo you want now. Buy the one you want 3 years from now.

Bump. I also have a fair to good 1895ish SS Stewart American Princess to sweeten any trade deal for a long neck open back. It’s not perfect and has a few issues but it’s definitely playable. Would also consider a Gibson RK 180. I can send you as many detailed pics as you want. Happy Weekend!

Interested, sending pm.

Still available. You’ll never need to upgrade from this one! Happy weekend all!

Any chance of more pics, like the heel and the back of the pot? Also any video footage of it being played? Would like to hear it since I cannot play it first. Thanks

Hi Justin - I’ve sent you 2 responses to your initial message and a separate IM to your account with no response. Are you getting my messages? I have plenty of additional pics and can send as many and of anything in particular you want.

Sorry, need to save money. Almost made the impulse buy, Charles had many more pics. And sent me a quick video the banjo sounds nice!

Hey All - I think my add expires in June so this may be my last bump for a bit. Please tip your bar tender and remember that most regrets in life aren’t about the mistakes you’ve made but rather the opportunities you passed up. Peace!
