Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Yes, it is well made, have had Washburn guitars & expect the banjo to hold up as well Reliability How has it stood up over time? Just got it nut seems well made. General Your general opinion of this product. This banjo is a good all around instrument, am planning to add Shubb 5th string capo & Snuffy Smith II bridge, Action is good right out of the box. I found it easy to set the bridge using 12th string harmonics Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Feels natural, good balance Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Very melodic Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Excellent Action How was the action out of the box? As stated above the action was great, right out of the box, set the bridge & started playing, I play from 3 - 4 hours a day.
