I've had it now for 7 years...been to two different setup people. Dead is all I can say.
Sound Rating: 2
Set up was decent when it first arrived
Setup Rating: 7
Maple, speed neck, everything else was standard for the Lexington
Appearance Rating: 8
Hardware seems good enough. I have a Samick that sounds better. The Lexington is religated to the closet until I can do something with it.
Reliability Rating: 2
Didn't bother to take it back to Huber.....Did purchase the "Killer Tone" DVD to try to get it to wake up myself after taking it to two different setup people.
Customer Service: not rated
Gonna have to upgrade to the HR30 system to get decent tone out of it.
Components Rating: 4
Kinda aggravated that in order to get decent tone out of the banjo, I'll have to spend an additional $1300 after paying a premium price to begin with.
Some of them are great.......this one is just a dog.....it happens I guess
