Bishline: Rosemary Custom

Submitted by 01charles on 3/30/2013

Where Purchased: capos music

Year Purchased: 2013
Price Paid: 3400 ($US)


I didnt think a banjo that looks as good as it does could sound as good but it does. amazing playability and tone.just because this banjo deserves it Iput a fults pro 5 xyz tail piece on and I dont think any banjo at any price can beat the sound.

Sound Rating: 10


set up was action no buzz.felt like a hot rodded guitar.head was tuned perfectly.

Setup Rating: 10


Rob Bishline named this banjo after his mother.she must be one beautifull lady . the quilted resonator and flamed neck are un believable.also has quilted maple binding this really stands out.I dont believe any banjo looks better just maybe defferent. it comes stock in mohagany quilted resonator mohagany neck.this one is maple with flamed neck and honey stain .

Appearance Rating: 10

recently purchased a Bishline Rosemary custom from Capos music.The banjo is amazing and the service was second to none.Gill the owner answered all Email questions within a hour.I was concerned about packaging he made sure it would arrive fine.they lined top of banjo with bubble wrapinside of case and packed case in box with bubble wrap and other arrived very fast and in perfect condition I think you could have thrown it from a building and it would have been fine.GREAT new shop opened in 2009 awsome staff.many instruments and parts Highly Recommend this store check them out online.

Stands: gold tone cradle banjo stand

Submitted by 01charles on 7/31/2012

Where Purchased: amazon

Overall Comments

this stand does what it says the banjo rest on two padded feet that support the pot taking all pressure off the resonator screws. leans back more in this position but is plenty stable on carpet and hard floor.havent had any sticking issues,and they supply a wrench to lock or tighten supports to taste.very well made a little lite but works great.Highly Recommend

Bridges: kat eyz bridge by Mike Smith

Submitted by 01charles on 7/13/2012

Where Purchased: direct from kat eyz site

Overall Comments

litterally cant say enough about these bridges.craftsmanship and packaging are top notch.Mike writes all specs on case.tried bridge with old strings difference was amazing.then replaced strings and reset.It sounds like a different banjo highs were muddy now sharp and clear .4th rich and full with great volume.highly recommend !
