  • I tried the fb-54 and loved it

    As reviewed by brett on 3/31/2008

    I have only been playing a short time, but felt ready to beyond a beginners banjo. I tried others such as the Deering Goodtime, but absolutely fell in love with the smoothness and tone of the Fender. I was able to play it faster and smoother than my own even though I just picked up the Fender. I could not leave without buying one. I found the wider neck of the Deering awkward, but the neck of the Fender was absolute joy. And let me tell you, the Fender is some looker.

  • My Favorite Banjo!

    As reviewed by Nic Meineke on 9/13/2013

    I've had this Banjo before and I am trying to get another one and I really like it for the name brand "Fender", and I like the way it sounds and the inlays are pretty groovy. It's not an open back banjo but it sounds & plays incredibly well. I seriously love this banjo! The quality of this Banjo is so Far Out!
