Sounds great

By John-h5T_z

from PA

I dont know much about re-sale value of these banjos, so the cost might be a bit high, but with the brass tone ring and stunning inlays, this banjo is a keeper for me. The sound is really nice. I would recomend upgrading the bridge to a more suitable hard-wood bridge. But otherwise, this banjo is great!!
