I play bluegrass and this banjo has a bright sound. Extremely loud and powerful. A well respected instrument technican in Toronto said, and I quote"you've got quite a weapon there".
Sound Rating: 9
The banjo was set up perfectly. Great action. I wouldn't change a thing.
Setup Rating: 10
Curly maple neck and resonator. A beautiful finish. Mother of pearl in lay.
I can't see any flaws.

I will use this on a gig anytime without backup. The finish is fantastic.

I contacted Rob Bishline after my purchase and he sent me the nicest e mail. I am confident Rob will provide the best cutomer service available.

I spent the afternoon at Elderly playing every banjo in the place. I kept going back to the Bishline Classic. It was head and shoulders the best 5 string in the store.
