General Your general opinion of this product. This thing sounds fantastic. I couldn't ask for a more well put together instrument for the price. Amazing tone, flawless finish, effortless playability. Perfect for anyone from beginner to professional! Very well constructed. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I forsee this thing lasting the test of time. Seems hardy and reliable but time will tell. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Plays effortlessly. Feels beautiful in the hands. Smooth burr free neck. A+++ Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Very nice bight tone. Amazing bluegrass sound. The resonator definitely does its job to amplify and sustain. Action How was the action out of the box? As with any banjo it needs the bridge properly set up but after I got it in place and tuned it, the action was just right. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish is flawless. It truly is a thing of beauty. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Time will tell. Seems like it will last the test of time though.
