Tailpieces  Golden Gate adjustable Presto style Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

Submitted by mainejohn (see all reviews from this person) on 10/25/2016

Where Purchased: SFI

Overall Comments

Golden Gate needs to pay more attention to design and quality control.:

1. There were no grooves for the strings to sit in, and it was very difficult to keep the 1st and 4th strings from popping out sideways as I was tightening them.

2. The "flapper" would not close completely

3. The hole for the third string is smaller and in a slightly different place than the original Prestos.

4. The plating under the flapper was flawed.

I returned it to Bob Smakula the next day for credit. He was very responsive when I reported the problem. Not his fault that this tailpiece is junk.
