Sound is wonderful warm and full with just the right volume. Exactly what I wanted from a walnut banjo.
Sound Rating: 10
Arthur made and set it up exactly as I asked. Action right on the money low enough for easy play but high enough for great sound. He also threw in a extra bridge to see which I like best.
Setup Rating: 10
