Ok so before i got this little beauty I also was slightly frighten by some of the reviews about it. I got this starter banjo took it right out of the box and all I had to do was put the bridge on. This is not a difficult task if you have any experience putting a bridge on other instruments and know how to position it properly. I will say that the bridge could have been slightly better because I did have some string buzz but that was not a hard fix. For being a beginner banjo player this works great, it sounds great, and it really looks great. With a new bridge head and strings it will sound even better. The gig bag is great that comes with it, it's a little big, but works good and the dvd and book are good to get you learning some great tunes. I definitely recommend this for beginners who also might not have a big dollar amount to spend.

Rogue's Banjo Starter Pack:
be wary and ready for major dissapoinment should you take the risk.it's not too bad on the wallet for all you get with the package, but it has completely fallen apart before i could even spend any real time on it.
the extras the banjo comes with are great to help get started.
the quality has been just a trainwreck and a nightmare. after just a few short playing sessions i came back to find the 5th string tuning peg came out. after several attempts at getting it glued and rooted back in place and the string NOT staying in tune at all, i find that also the tailpiece is bent out of shape and needs replaced. extremely frustrating!
while the price is well under all other options (though still quite an investment for a poor musician in bad economic times) if i want to even begin really learning i'll have to pay to have the parts replaced and properly set up, not to mention the time, effort, and money i've put into getting the tunung peg back into place.

Bought two, variable quality, still a good deal

        Comments about Rogue Learn the Banjo Starter Pack:

        Bought two. First one was easy to set up (with a lot of help via the internet) No prob at all with neck, tailpiece, bridge, even the head tension etc. Tuned well, stayed in, declared a good instrument by a pro.
        Second one a different story. Gave up, took it to the music store techie who had to tweak about everything. Ended up with the tailpiece "still not right," and the bridge at an angle, THEN it sounded great, stayed in tune, etc. So, luck of the draw. So, yes I would recommend,but with a caution: Don't get one built on a Monday, or, plan on taking it to a trained tech to get it dialed in from the start.
        BTW, I just went to the website to buy a third. What a shock to see this package has doubled in price. What's up with that?

        Expected better quality built but things are made cheaper these days, I got this kit for my daddy for Christmas not bad for the price, just disappointed that it's made so cheap,

                  Was fairly easy to setup and tune. Was practicing with the video within 30 minutes adn had the first rolls down in an hour. A good kit for the beginer who isn't sure if it is the instrument for you.

                        Banjo kit comes with bridge unattached. No instructions for assembly so novice is lost. Customer seervice was no help at all. Only drawback to an otherwise great purchase. Have your musician friends on call for this one.

                              never played a banjo, never touched one, got this thing set up to the best of my knowledge, tuned it up, and got out the chord chart. within an hour I had some awesome tunes coming from this reasonably priced banjo. give it a shot, worth every bit of what MF charges.

                              I can't really give a fair review yet, it might not mean a thing that my banjo arrived with it's fifth tuning peg loose and unfixable. Musician's Friend has been most helpful about arranging an exchange, so we'll see how the next banjo works out ...
