Actually, It looks better than what I started on, 40 years ago. I guess it looks like a good “starter” for someone not-sure about their banjo aspirations. Even without hearing it.

TR and Tim you're both wrong, it's a genuine reproduction Pyecaust.

Seems the banjo is made by Saga, being sold on amazon.com for 179.95 and less with DVD, gig bag, etc.
