Overall Comments

For the price you can't ask for a nicer banjo. I've had my eye on this one for a long time and finally got one and would recommend it to anyone looking for a moderatly priced banjo. I just keep picking it up and playing it and I guess you could call it a love affair. Again, for the money you can't go wrong.

An absolute pleasure to deal with. Ordered a Gold Tone WL-250 last week and received it today in perfect condition. Banjo and case were packed very well in a sturdy box. Everyone at Janet Davis Music was courteous and helpful and made my purchase a pleasant one. Three cheers for Janet Davis Music!!!
