*This is the left-handed version of the BG-250. Photos show the right-handed version.

This long-time member of the Gold Tone banjo family defines versatility.

The BG-250 boasts a full-weight bell-brass tone ring (the lowest-priced banjo in our lineup to offer this feature) AND Gold Tone's unique CONVERTABILITY.

The flangeless design lets you pop off the resonator (and the mounting brackets, too!) giving you a loud, clear openback banjo that's perfect for clawhammer or "folk" style playing.

Available as left-handed model.
