Comments about Morgan Monroe Rocky Top RT-B01 Banjo:

This banjo ships without the bridge in place, so you'll have to put it in properly yourself. With the help of the internet, that shouldn't be too hard. However, the one I received required a bit of truss rod and fretwire adjustment. I know enough about fretted instruments that this wasn't a problem for me, but for complete beginners this might not be good. Sounds like others haven't had problems out of the box though, so you could always send it back and ask for a replacement.
