This is a continuation to my other reviews for this banjo. Check "SETUP"for changes I have made.

Sound Rating: 10


I put a Keichner tailpiece on it along with a Bart Verman 5/8" Archie bridge. I tightened up the head.
It really sounds great.

Overall Comments

I feel, for the price I paid, plus my minor upgrades, I got a really fine banjo.  I paid $515.00 and now they are up to around $600.00.
