Really good sound and is still getting better as it gets played. It is good all up and down the neck and is suitable for any style.

There are no cheap/weak parts on these banjo's. The Gotoh tuners are very good and I like the Hatfield ring with the Cox rim..... good combination.

This is without a doubt the best banjo for the money being built. Stolen ? I would be calling Arthur to build another one if I could not get it back.
I highly recommend these banjo's if You have never played one you should.
