I Like the sound alot. Warm and deep with good pop.
Sound Rating: not rated
It was set up fairly well when I bought it. I've had a few set ups since and replaced the bridge with a Scorpion, then a McPeak and then back to the Scorpion (liked the McPeak alot for the crispness it brought but have been going for a darker sound lately and am really liking the Scorpion again).
Setup Rating: not rated
It looks good. It looks like a banjo. The diamond dots aren't what I would choose in a custom banjo but I liked the sound alot.
Appearance Rating: not rated
The hardware is good. No problems. Handle on the case broke when I was walking with it (after 2 years) but the banjo is good.
