Appearance Rating: 10
I dont believe i will have to change a thing except the strings on this banjo. it will eventually have to get replated. I will take it to all my gigs now
Reliability Rating: 10

This banjo is top notch in ever way possible. Pass rim, hopkins tonering hopkins bridge. doesnt get any better than that
Components Rating: 10
I bought it used at $3900. That was probably the greastest steal ive ever had in my life. Its the best banjo ive ever palyed bar-none. after playing all of the hopkins banjos at IBMA i knew i had to have one.
Ill give it a 10 but i dont think it does this banjo justice
