I bought this case during a holiday sale, and I feel I got an excellent deal. I was buying this for an Irish bouzouki, as they usually fit fine in a 5-string banjo case. The only issue that worried me was the length from the strap button to the top of the neck joint, which is longer on a bouzouki than a round banjo head. Fortunately, it fit perfectly, but with no room to spare (15.5" in case anyone else is buying it for the same reason).

As others have noted, this case will require some additional padding in the body area because the neck rest creates a fulcrum and the instrument flops around in the case until the lid is closed. I found some black material similar to the type used in the case, and covered a piece of 1" foam with it, and now the instrument fits snugly without flopping around.

Overall, this is a nice, solid case that's well-constructed for carrying to the occasional gig, or safely storing the instrument. I wouldn't recommend it for a hard-working touring professional, or for extended travel, but for nearly all other uses, it's well worth it.

This case would be ideal for a beginner class or other lightweight model banjo. The only neck support that this case offers is at the base of the neck just above the heal. If this case is dropped with a heavier banjo inside of it, the neck could break. The exterior strength, as previously mentioned, isn't all that great. It gives under moderate pressure. So if something we dropped onto the case, anything inside of it is going to feel the hit as well. The hardware seems to be OK. The locks secure the lid down firmly. Again, this case would be good for a lightweight banjo or cheaper model. It would even go well for someone who is going to be using this case for storage. The price is right, but just understand that the quality is affected somewhat when not spending as much money on other brands.
The features on this banjo case are pretty much standard on all banjo cases.
The exterior strength and protection is OK. It's nothing fantastic, but will hold up to light/moderate use.
The price is amazingly low. However, with "value" being more about what product your getting for the money spent, it's hard to rate this in the top of it's class. It's overall strength isn't great. The interior padding is someone hard and not forgiving.

        This is a good quality case, but it has a very loose fit which allows my banjo to move around within it. Ironically, it is pictured in the ad with the same make and model banjo that I own, but doesn't work well with that banjo.

          I bought this case for my wife's Epiphone B200 banjo after reading some of the reviews and checking the specs. The B200 has a resonator on it, so my concern was that the case may be too small. I am happy to report that this case fits the B200 like a glove! I am very happy with this purchase and so is my wife.

                I bought this case for one of my dad's banjos whose case was worn out completely. This case was much more plush inside that the one it replaced, and cost less money, also. Excellent case for any amount of money, but unbelievable for what it sells for.

                        The case is sized for banjos with a resonator, but will work with the smaller diameter open back pots. For a proper fit, and to place the neck flat in the cradle, you'll need to add cushioning to the bottom. Good deal for the cost of a little extra padding.

                        This is a nice case for the price. I didn't expect top quality at this price but it is of decent quality. My main complaints are that there should be better support under the neck near the headstock. Also, I had to install padding under the resonator to get the banjo to sit level and so that there was no space under the heel which can cause some stress on that area. I bought this for my Gold Star/ back-up banjo.
