It has a 22-fret truss-rodded neck with edge binding and hand-dressed fretting and 2-point neck attachment with twin co-ordinator rods for extra stability. It's fitted with good quality planetary tuners and a geared 5th string peg. It has a solid armrest and good quality cast "New Kerschner" tailpiece. It has an easily removeable resonator for having a go at open-back styles. It comes with top grade strings & bridge and is expertly set-up for optimum playability - and plain but very acceptable finish & cosmetics All this adds up to one of the best entry-level banjo available in the UK at the moment - for sound, playability and stability, nothing else in this price bracket comes close .... Built in the UK from imported parts.
