Wonderful banjo for bluegrass playing. Love the light weight. Loud, good tone, very good banjo. Sound rating if rated for banjos in that price range would be 10
Sound Rating: 7
The banjo was set up as I requested. I later changed to 1/2 bridge. String action is perfect now.
Setup Rating: 10
Blonde finish, simple. But that helps keep the cost down.
Appearance Rating: 7
I expect this banjo to outlast me.
Reliability Rating: 10
Warranty is one year, but at this price I am surprised it even has a warranty. A couple emails to the company were answered the next day.
Customer Service: 10
Nothing outstanding except it is an excellent banjo in a price range anyone could buy. It could easily sell for much more.

They keep the price down by skipping all the options. I'm adding an armrest and I will install side dots. I think it is good that they sell a no frills banjo, in order to sell a good quality banjo and a price anyone can buy. Frills can always be added.
