Found this on Amazon on Prime Day. I had been thinking about finding one for some time. The time and price was right. I have never played one before today. It's a little different from a guitar. Now, I don't know much about banjos, but from what I can tell, this seems like a pretty good quality instrument. Looks and feels like someone put a little effort into it. If you're looking for something a little different, I recommend giving one of these a go. I've had a good bit of fun with it so far. And suddenly, I hungry for some 'possum.
