Really nice sound. Very loud, really nice

Banjo was completely assembled. I had to move
the bridge back by a couple of inches.

Setup Rating: 10


No flaws, a beautiful instrument. Curly maple
resonator, rosewood neck, beautiful fretboard

Appearance Rating: 10


Solid hardware. Machined screws, double support
rods, sealed tuning pegs, 24 head clamps,
engraved arm rest, etc. Very durable, should
easily last a lifetime.

Everything that is highly recommended on top-end
banjos is present with the BJ50. The unit ships
with two adjustment tools for making minor
adjustments to the neck and other screws around
the resonator.

I absolutely love my BJ50. It is very well built and
for under $800 it is a very fine instrument.
