Stelling Golden Cross Maple | Banjo.com
The Golden Cross was the ninth Stelling banjo to be built, the first one to have the trademarked Stelling peghead shape. It was named for Tony Golden, who rode motorcycles with Geoff and bought the first Golden Cross. This model was also honored to be the banjo played by the late great Don Reno for the last ten years of his life, and was featured on many of his fine recordings with Bill Harrell. Originally made of walnut, the current Golden Cross features fancy curly maple with the golden sunburst stain and purfling inlaid along the neck and resonator binding. A popular option is the engraved truss rod cover which features this banjo owner's name.
