2012 Gold Star GF-85
Case: Deering hardshell case

Here’s a rare opportunity to own a banjo from the personal collection of “The Duke of Drive”, Terry Baucom. This Gold Star GF-85 was a banjo he purchased out of curiosity on a bit of a whim, but it sounded so good he decided to keep it around and played it enough to wear a spot on the head from anchoring his cannon of a right hand. The GF-85 features a 3-ply rock maple rim, traditional-style mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard with medium nickel-silver frets, one-piece flange, 20-hole flathead-style tone ring, deluxe mahogany resonator, Presto-style tailpiece & armrest, and Gotoh planetary tuners with a geared fifth-peg. The banjo is all stock with the exception of a Richie Dotson bridge installed by Terry himself. Comes in a Deering hardshell case. 

The net proceeds from this sale will benefit the Terry Baucom Bluegrass Scholarship Fund, and a letter certifying the banjo's provenance will be included with the sale.
