Nice instrument for a reasonable price.


Very nice looking and good sounding banjo for a Christmas gift. My wife is very happy with it. It is beautiful to look at and it holds a tune well. Decent action for such a low price. Although I play a lefty guitar, I am tempted to learn to play on this right handed banjo.
