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.

Appearance Rating: 10


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

Reliability Rating: 9

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.

Overall Comments

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.
