I'm a guitar player who wanted to get into banjo, so I bought this pack. Boy am I glad I did! I love it! At such a low price I wasn't sure what to expect as far as quality, but I trust the Fender name so I bought it. I'm no banjo expert, but I do know a quality instrument from a cheap one, and this is surprisingly well made for the price. It plays easy and sounds great, and the other things you get as part of the pack are a great bonus. I definitely recommend this!

The good:
I bought the FB-300 pack to play around with, It was on sale so it was a very good deal and is actually made pretty good and has a sound that is pretty decent once you get it set up. Easy to work on
The bad:
Wasn't set up to play at all! but watched a 30 min Utube setup video tightened all the loose hardware and head and its sounds really good.

Comments about Fender FB 300 Banjo Pack:

I am a guitar player that decided I wanted to learn 5 -string banjo and purchased this because of the price.
Unpacked, installed bridge, tuned up and this banjo was ready to go. I am extremely pleased. Exactly what I wanted, a playable instrument that I didn't have to put a lot of money into until I was sure it was something I would pursue farther.

    Comments about Fender FB 300 Banjo Pack:

    On sale this was a great affordable banjo package. I've played guitar many years and wanted to learn banjo. You will need to take measurements and set the bridge in the correct location before you can play it. Easy DIY even for a banjo noob like myself. Just google fender banjo bridge setup for a short and clear instructional video

        I'd never played the banjo before I bought this one, but at the price, I couldn't pass it up! Very pretty instrument, comes with all the basic things you need if you're a complete beginner like me. I haven't found a better deal on a starter pack, especially not with such great quality!

            Comments about Fender FB 300 Banjo Pack:

            I'm not a banjo player, I play guitar, but I couldn't resist the price. There's a ton of value here! Banjo, gig bag, strings, picks, etc. everything a beginner needs (besides a banjo mute, I have neighbors).

            I'm no expert but the instrument feels quality and it rings loud and crisp. You'll probably have to get it setup for you. I had to remove and file the nut down a bit and adjust the neck to get things where I wanted them, but now it's perfect. (Of course, don't do those things yourself unless you know what you're doing, let a pro do it.) For reference, the scale length is NOT the 27.4 inches it says on the website, it's 26.2 inches which is double the nut to 12th fret measurement. It intonates perfectly there. Setting it at 27+ will cause trouble!

            Anyway, from a banjo novice, this thing is absolutely fantastic. The perfect first instrument for anyone and will no doubt me last for years. Now I just need to learn how to play it!
