This banjo is a "two in one"... I can remove the first part of the fingerboard from the nut to the 5th fret and replace it with a fretless part... only the tuning pegs (guitar) seems cheap... but it stays in tune... I'll maybe change them in the future for planetary pegs !
10/10 for the fingerboard option... 6/10 for the tuning pegs...
