I've never played a banjo before so I don't have anything to directly compare it to, but I have owned a huge number of guitars over the years so I can compare it to those. The build quality is excellent (frets are all finished nicely, etc) and it sounds beautiful. It has a lovely echoey resonance which fills the room without being twangy and annoying.
