        Great value! Great little instrument! Simple, easy setup. Throw the strings away, put on a good set and you're good to go.

        Comments about Morgan Monroe MB-50 30 Bracket Aluminum Rim Banjo:

        I've played guitar for 40 years and couldn't pass up the deal on this banjo. I love it. Good quality for Chinese made. If you don't know how to set the bridge on a banjo get help. It's all in the set up. Great tone and volume when done right. Very happy and I highly recommend it, especially at the Stupid Deal of the Day price.

        Comments about Morgan Monroe MB-50 30 Bracket Aluminum Rim Banjo:

        This is my first banjo. Overall well made instrument. Did not come with instructions to set up bridge. I Googled and found out how and did myself with no problem, but for a beginner it would be a pain. ( I already know how to set up guitars and such fairly well). Great value for the money though.
