5 of 5 Nice banjo for the price May 14, 2018
Reviewer: Rebecca B. from Canton, GA United States  
I’m happy with this banjo.  It arrived within 6 days of placing the order.  There was no follow up email to confirm my order, so for a few days I was wondering if it went through, as the charge was still showing as Pending on my credit card account.  Also, the action seems a little high to me, making me question whether the setup was actually done by Gold Tone, (which I paid an extra $15 for), but I’m by no means an expert on banjo setup, so my doubt may be unfounded.  This is a really nice looking banjo and at the best price online.
