Where Purchased: The Hangout Classifieds

Year Purchased: 2012
Price Paid: 3100 ($US)


Honduran rosewood tone ring...produces incredible sound... more volume than expected... full... but bright as well... should cover a range of tunes just fine.

Sound Rating: 10


Haven't changed a thing... excellent string height for clawhammer. The neck is a tad wider than I am accustomed, but would only be an issue for someone with quite small hands.

Setup Rating: 10


I'd give it a 10+... Jason has to be among the best luthiers on the planet... impeccable finish and detail... superb inlay... and he has developed his own "aged" custom hardware and bridge.

Appearance Rating: 10


Based on a resonator model i currently own... i would dare say this banjo will last for generations.

Reliability Rating: 10

Customer Service

Lifetime warranty... and Jason could not be nicer.

Overall Comments

I was fortunate to buy this banjo from someone who had ordered it... waited 18 months... but had developed a physical condition prevented him from being able to play it. I purchased it the day it was in the Classifieds!
Jason extended the warranty to me as the "original owner". The banjo is a claro walnut with ziricote fingerboard and trim... with a fanciful "day to night" inlay from peghead... to frailing scoop. It sounds as good as it looks... and it looks fantastic.
A Romero banjo is a great investment!
