Sound

I play bluegrass and this banjo is a perfect fit for me. Its loud and clear like a bell

Sound Rating: 10

Setup

The banjo had been dropped at the store and 3 or 4 tension hooks were loose. The action was perfect. I replaced the tailpiece with a Kershner and tightened the head. All easy changes

Setup Rating: 10

I believe its mahogany...no flaws and the heart inlays give it a nice look. the resonator, hardware, everything is easy on the eyes
