Where Purchased: Direct

Year Purchased: 2007
Price Paid: 2500 ($US)


Very loud and bright, with amazing sustain.

Sound Rating: 10


Didn't have to change a thing but get it back in tune.

Setup Rating: 10


This is a beautiful banjo, it's the only walnut Magnum Opus Cliff has made. Pretty, but not over-the-top inlays, and very nice mother of pearl on the edges of the neck and resonator.

Appearance Rating: 10


It all looks pretty bombproof. Quality hardware and nice finish on the wood.

Reliability Rating: 10

Customer Service

Extremely helpful and friendly. Lifetime warranty.

No weak points that I can see, everything is top notch. Standout components would be the wonderfully shaped neck, maple resonator, Keith tuners and Blaylock tone ring.

Components Rating: 10

Overall Comments

I would recommend that anyone looking in this price range ($2000+) give Cliff a shout. This banjo was not cheap, but for the quality it was a steal.

Overall Rating: 10
