Sounds incredible. Low end response, deliciohus overtones for days, amazing "pop" when finger picked.
Sound Rating: 10
Set up when I got it. Different from what I have been playing but perfect for this banjo.
Setup Rating: 10
Dark stained maple, ebony cap on the heel and back of the pot, ebony fretboard, custom gold mother of pearl inlays that look amazing

I am expecting this to live longer than I will. It makes it's stage debut in a couple of days
Reliability Rating: 10
Lindsay is a super sweet dude and very easy to work with. He is very obviously excited about building banjos and it shows from the craftsmanship.

Components Rating: 10
I'm still getting to know this new banjo, it's the first custom instrument I've ever had made. I fell in love with it the moment I picked it up and that is just getting deeper and deeper by the day. I would absolutely recommend Quail Creek to anyone and may very well have another banjo made by Quail Creek at some point in the future.
