Comments about Recording King The Elite Traditional Banjo:
Unless you are all hung up by the name on the peg head and don't mind wasting money you could be spending on some thing else, pick up an RK Elite and see what you think. Spend a little of what you saved getting a good set up, put a piece of masking tape over the name and let the "experts" gathered around guess what you are playing, bet most of the guesses come in over the 5K mark. Lots of banjo for the buck.
