Wow, this baby is just sweet, down the neck it has a nice not to bright, but clear sound a still gives a really nice Umph to it. Up the neck is just beautiful, the harmonics are really nice also.

I only deal with Janet Davis and will stay like that. I have dealt with other companies were they were nice also. It is just something about Janet Davis that is really great. I even call to talk to the manager when ever someone helps me out to let them know, what great people they have working for them.

Over all I think this is such a great banjo. Have two others this is my first USA made, and I can tell the difference right off the bat. I am so thankful I got an alarm system on my house. It sucks that I have other banjo's though, because I will NOT pick up any other then my Sullivan, this baby is just sweet , I even named her :)
