Bishline  Rosemary Custom Banjo Reviews

Submitted by freddyvee (see all reviews from this person) on 9/1/2017

Where Purchased: Bishline Banjos

Year Purchased: 2017
Price Paid: 3780 ($US)

Sound

I play a mixture of bluegrass and folk and I think this banjo will prove to be very versatile in expressing various styles of music. It can be sweet and mellow or it can pound those hard driving bluegrass railroad spikes.

Sound Rating: 10

Setup

The banjo was set up perfectly by Rob Bishline. No tinkering necessary.

Setup Rating: 10

Appearance

This thing is crazy awesome beautiful! Mahogany neck, quilted mahogany resonator, black powder coated tension hoop and flange contrasted by gold plated hardware, amber tuners, everything just as I specified. I can not find a single flaw in workmanship.

Appearance Rating: 10

Reliability

All components seem to be top notch. Playability is super. I find myself having to sing a little louder cause this banjo wants to be heard!

Reliability Rating: 10

Customer Service

The folks at Bishline Banjos are great. They go above and beyond to make sure you are a happy customer. I hope Rob and company continue to make these high quality banjos for many years to come. It's what this country needs...... less fussin', more banjos.

Everthing stands out. Unless I happen to win the lottery, this will be my final banjo purchase.
I'm sure my wife will be happy about that!

I didnt think a banjo that looks as good as it does could sound as good but it does. amazing playability and tone.just because this banjo deserves it Iput a fults pro 5 xyz tail piece on and I dont think any banjo at any price can beat the sound.

Appearance

Rob Bishline named this banjo after his mother.she must be one beautifull lady . the quilted resonator and flamed neck are un believable.also has quilted maple binding this really stands out.I dont believe any banjo looks better just maybe defferent. it comes stock in mohagany quilted resonator mohagany neck.this one is maple with flamed neck and honey stain .
