The banjo was set up for me to my specs when i ordered it from the folks at Morgan Music. couldnt have been more perfect

It had a high fret but its quite common. fixed it myself no prob

Gold plated maple. absolutely perfect. the tiger stripes on hte neck are amazing.

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

Overall Comments

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
