Components Rating: 10
Highly Recomend any Tennessee Banjo or any other of there instruments
Prices are very reasonable for the Quality you get
If this Banjo were to be stolen Some one would pay dearly it is like one of my kids
LOVE IT. It is such a dream to play and in a jam of 2 or more Banjos Tennessee always comes to the top
To compare my Tennessee Banjo wouldn't be fair to the other Makers
