Buy your Gold Tone BG-250 Bluegrass Special from Eagle Music Shop and receive our premier workshop setup at no extra cost.

Each banjo we supply is individually set up in our on-site Specialist Workshop here at Eagle Music. Any banjo purchased from Eagle will be fully SET UP, checked for intonation and playability and tuned ready for playing straight out of the box! 

Like many old time banjos, this model features an openback pot assembly design utilizing 24 shoe lugs instead of a one-piece flange. This cuts down on the weight by about 3lbs while still being able to deliver a powerful and punchy tone. This convertible feature is great for players wanting to play in both popular styles. Other features include a bound rosewood fingerboard, a 12” bound mahogany resonator, the new GT Master planetary tuners and flat-top 20-hole bell brass tone ring.
