I searched pretty far and wide for a review on this website and I could not find anything. I was searching for a Savannah SB-100 left-handed model for my first banjo and found www.guitarstringdepot.com to have the lowest price on it. Some places charge a great deal more for a lefty model and I did not run into that issue here.
Although it may be better for a beginner to purchase an instrument that has been professionally set-up, I was almost positive that the banjo was not something that he stocked and that it would be drop shipped to me. In this I was correct.
7 days after I ordered it, I had not heard anything besides the automated order confirmation email. So I sent an email to the website (I didn't even bother to call) and within 2 hours, Gary, (the owner) replied to my email and was very polite and apologetic for not contacting me sooner. He also provided me with my shipping information, but I no longer needed it. My banjo had already arrived after 7 days.
So, I got exactly what I wanted and expected, in a week. I would have given a 10 if I would have heard an update on my order within a few days.
I would buy from again!
