I know nothing about Gold Star banjos. Have no interest in this banjo and post this here in case someone is interested. Current price is $510.

It looks brand new.
I have bought several items from EBTH. They have always been honest brokers, and items are well packed.
If it was made in the early 1980s, in Japan, it has somewhat higher value than the "newer" cohort, made in China/Korea (I think Korea). $510 is an ok price if no premiums or ridiculously high shipping.
Dick its China, NO banjos have been made in Korea since Sam Ick went bankrupt in about 2003
Thanks Scott, I knew my memory was vague on that Korea point.
