But can you keep it in tune? That's what I have a problem with.
Seriously, I don't think I have read a more eloquent description of an instrument that says absolutely nothing. Thanks, Scott. I needed a chuckle this morning.

As long as it is quality enough to play dulcet music - what more could you want?

That part is nice, but what really attracts me the most is its inherent corrosion-fighting qualities. That's value-added should the first line of corrosion defense - the oxford cloth bag - somehow fail in doing its job.

First line mentions it is made of plywood. At least that's honest. I want to know what the 24 consolidation brackets are.

I'm trying to figure out what a mid-range closed handle is, just in case I need to fit other people.

The description makes just about as much sense if it's actually for the bicycle in the first photo.

I wonder what they would pay to have someone write a comprehensible description?

Interestingly, the same item is available at Walmart online with the identical description so it must have been provided by the manufacturer. But wait!!! The price at Walmart is almost 50% less! What a deal for a banjo with all those special features!

I sort of wondered what a 'Mid range handle to fit various people' was I'll assume a neck. The tuner does have a button cell to adjust sound level for a long time. I hate it when your tuner's button cells don't adjust sound level for a long time and then decides to go full loud or something... I've told the missus I think there is a market in China for creating actual english descriptions for their products. Somehow someone saying it will make happy happy on your face for long time has the same impact as 'Gives hours of enjoyment'.
