Ordered this Banjo as I am a beginner and have short chunky fingers and this model has a slightly wider neck than the Banjo I was learning with.
The string spacing is spot on for me and the open back sound although different to my resonator Banjo does not detract from the fantastic sound this Deering Banjo achieves even in my inexperienced hands.
Don't buy cheap even if you are only just starting to learn as you will upgrade sooner than you think if you do. Most of all I enjoy playing it.
Rated 5 out of 5
