Very good banjo for beginners in 17 frets

Rated 5 out of 5

I intend to use the banjo to diversify. I have a classical guitar for classical and 'older' Irish music such as O'Carolan. I have a mandolin which I use for folk music, but which will now take me towards more classical pieces, and I shall use the banjo for Celtic folk music etc.
This is my first banjo, so I am no expert, but so far it seems to be an excellent instrument for its price and purpose.
