SKU: BG-250FW
The new BG-250FW has all of the same great features found on the BG-250F model. It offers a slightly wider fingerboard with a nut width of 1-5/16” (standard BG-250F is 1-3/16”). There have been many requests over the years from players with larger hands (and fingers) to make a wider neck width under the nut, and Gold tone is now happy to include the BG-250FW as a standard model to the Gold Tone line. The BG-250FW is the first professional 5 string banjo in our line. It is a vintage replica of the most famous banjo ever played in bluegrass music. All its parts are accurate reproductions of the original. In addition, we have added a maple neck to brighten the tone compared to the original mahogany necks and added a straightline tailpiece to provide extra downward pressure on the bridge creating even more volume. Features also include a bound rosewood fingerboard, a die cast one piece flange and 13” bound mahogany resonator, the new GT Master planetary tuners, a 3-ply Canadian maple rim, flat-top 20-hole bell brass tone ring, and a complete setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida. For a no frills, straight ahead bluegrass banjo, the BG-250FW can not be beat for quality and tone.
