Comments about Fender Robert Schmidt Signature Plectrum Banjo:
I bought this banjo for playing both traditional Irish and more modern Celtic-rock styles, and it certainly sounded the part. It looked quite good too, but unfortunately I quickly ran into an issue. After playing the banjo for a few days, I picked it up and found cracks starting to appear at the nut on both sides of the neck. I quickly detuned the strings and removed the bridge to release the tension on the neck. Guitar Center was great and I was able to return it with no issue, but unfortunately Fender has discontinued this model and I'm unable to get a replacement. There aren't many other options out there with the price/features combination that this had, so I suspect it's going to be a tricky compromise somewhere to get comparable performance out of something else.
