I have the maple model. The BanjoHut had an audio of it and I really like the sound. This may have been the deciding factor on pruchasing this model. Along with limiting the amount of money to spend.

The banjo was set up ready to play out of the box.

The components and assembly are very nice. It is a step up from the cheap beginner models, and well worth it, but it is definitely not in the "professional" category.
