This banjo is what I was looking for. The tone is very mellow and laid back and can be loud for those heavy jams.

The seup was don by Ron Coleman in GA. He done a superb job the action is right where i wanted it. There where no issues I took it out and just started jamming with no hesitation.
Setup Rating: 10
The appearence is very is easy on the eyes. The neck is huundorus mahogany with a rosewood freet board. Then i have the gull inlays with hig end mother of pearl to accent the rosewood. The rim iam using is grinadilo in the form of a block rim. The reosnator is mahogany and is block construction as well. The over all finish is a satin look with white binding.
