Bishline: Rosemary Custom

Submitted by freddyvee on 9/1/2017

Where Purchased: Bishline Banjos

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


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


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

Setup Rating: 10


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


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

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 can't imagine there being a better built banjo on the market today for such a reasonable price.  Thank you Bishline Banjos.
