good

Has great volume and tone. The finish is spectacular. A truly beautiful banjo. My banjo teacher, who also plays in one of the most famous bluegrass bands out there, says it sounds as good as his Gibson "Earl Scruggs." Now for the only complaint. On my banjo, more time should have been taken fitting the neck to the pot. I had to shim it to get rid of the movement caused by the combination of a poorly fitted neck and a very heavy banjo. This being said, it easily competes with, or exceeds any banjo I've tried.

I wanted a Banjo that would take me where I wanted to go without having to buy another later. I think the FB59 is the ticket! It is a beautiful instrument!
