A beautiful thing to look at! Quality materials, feels solid and has a lovely, rich tone. A little work of art for the money.

I am returning to banjo playing after many years and this instrument is very easy to play. The quality of manufacture is excellent and the tone outstanding. It is light, making it easy to play for longer periods of time. The tuning pegs make tuning easy and precise. I would recommend this banjo to anyone who wants to learn.
