1979 Gold Star w/original case. Has professionally repaired peghead crack that is solid as a rock and hard to see unless you're looking for it. Has been absolutely stable in the 10 years I've owned the banjo. The tone ring has been replaced with what I think is a coveted Faulkner tone ring. Not positive put has the offset holes that all Faulkners have.
I put Rickard tuners on the banjo. The buyer can have these tuners for an additional $200 or I can put the originals back on.
Tail piece has been replaced with a Prucha 2-hump clam shell.
I've had a bunch of vintage Goldies over the years and the tone on this one is second to none.
Priced $500+ lower than typical due to headstock repair and also for a quick sale. You can also pay the same price for a new Chinese-made Gold Star re-issue, but good luck replicating the vintage tone this banjo has.
Feel free to email me for higher resolution photos.
