Gold Star: GF-100FE

Submitted by banjojason88 on 11/19/2008

Where Purchased: Local Music Store

Year Purchased: 2008
Price Paid: 1100 ($US)


Very nice sound. Bright and clear. For what you pay the tone of the banjo is excellent.

Sound Rating: 9


As with most new banjos, mine was not set-up. I had a guy snug the neck, tightening the head and i changed the bridge and the sound really came out.

Setup Rating: 7


The banjo looks just like a Gibson RB-75, minus the word Mastertone in pearl block.

Appearance Rating: 9


Very reliable, however I did change all the turners on the banjo. The hardware has shown no sign of aging.

Reliability Rating: 9

Customer Service

I have not had a reason to contact Customer Service.

Customer Service: not rated


The turners (5-Star) that came on it where not very good and the bridge was terrible. But other than those everything else is excellent.

Components Rating: 9

Overall Comments

I would recommend this banjo. If you are just staring out, experienced and need a somewhat cheep reliable banjo you can not go wrong with a Gold Star.
