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 GREAT case and inexpensive to boot. Unless you are doing a lot of flying and need something "heavy-duty", I would recommend this case for anything.

      very sturdy case... strong latch system ...very roomy, however you will likely need to purchase foam (t e n buck seat foam at hobby lobby) to fill the base of the case to a proper level- to level your specific banjo and snug it to the top of the case. Great value on sale! good at regular price

              For most of us this is perfectly good protection. If you gig a lot, travel a lot, other people handle your banjo, you might need more. For us mere mortals, it is a great case at a great price.

                Neck on my RW Jameson 6-string banjo is a little thick to fit as received, but the neck support piece was easy to take out and trim. Now the banjo sits in the case perfectly. Looks and fits like the case was made for it.

                WELL CONSTRUCTED CASE, HOWEVER, ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL. Your banjo will fit nicely if it is on spec. My banjo does not use a resonator consequently I will have to modify the fit to raise the body up about 2" so the banjo sits on plane with the top. Not a big deal...
                Overall the unit as-is, is very nice and sturdy... AND I WILL MAKE TWO MODS..1) To support the base with a makeshift hollow bottom and 2) install a 5" shallow storage box below the neck in addition to the one that is already there (cant have enough storage.) Its a keeper for the sale price.
