Great Banjo! Sounded decent out of the box. Good bass, very nice pop to it.
Sound Rating: 9
The head was a little loose when I got it. The bridge is not very good that came on it.
Setup Rating: 7
It is very nice looking. Simple, clean, just what I like. Bowtie inlay. All the finish work was perfect on it.
Appearance Rating: 10
The tuners are a little shabby. They dont want to stay in tune too well. But other that that I think it is really nice. I would use this banjo on stage in a heartbeat. I think it would stand next to any professional grade banjo without any problem.
Reliability Rating: 9
I bought it from a dealer. Didnt really interact much with them. I just purchased it from them and it came directly from SAGA's warehouse.

I put a Price straightline tailpeice, and a Snuffy Smith 3 11\16 bridge on it from the start. Man it made it nice! Really is a professional grade banjo.
Components Rating: 7
I think that this banjo is a must for anyone, begginer or pro. Most people say "for the money you cant go wrong". Which is definatley true. But even if this banjo was priced up in the 4 digits it is worth it. Unbeleivable deal for 800 dollars.
