Sound

Great Banjo! Sounded decent out of the box. Good bass, very nice pop to it.

Sound Rating: 9

Setup

The head was a little loose when I got it. The bridge is not very good that came on it.

Setup Rating: 7

Appearance

It is very nice looking. Simple, clean, just what I like. Bowtie inlay. All the finish work was perfect on it.

Appearance Rating: 10

Reliability

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

Customer Service

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.

Customer Service: not rated

Components

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

Overall Comments

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.
