          I bought this for my sons first birthday. He really likes it when I get out my Banjo, but I don't want him to mess with mine to much because of size and well it's expensive. I didn't want to get him one of the toy banjos because they are all like little toys and not a real instrument.

          This is very well made and I think will hold up to him playing with it and hopefully get him interested more and more in stringed instruments. Granted it will be a supervised play time and he won't be able to really play it for awhile, but it should allow him to gain an interest in just plucking some strings and making noise.

              great product. open the box, set up the bridge(about 40 seconds), tune it and this baby is ready to play. You have the rest of your life to master this instrument and she will last at least that long. THANK YOU, musician's friend (again).

              Tail piece bracket string anchor broke

              Comments about Lanikai LB6-S Openback Soprano Banjolele:

              When I opened the box for this banjolele I was very please. It is beautiful. It has a weight to it that led me to believe that it was solidly constructed. However, when I tuned it for the first time, I noticed that the G string would not tune properly. Then the string popped free with the string anchor from the tail piece bracket still attached. The feeling of euphoria from seeing this classic instrument changed to disappointment. I did not want to return it. So, I got some gorilla super glue and glued the anchor back in place. It works fine now, but I cannot recommend an instrument that breaks the first time it is tuned.

                I got this as a gift for my daughter. At first, the bridge (where the strings attach) broke. But Musicians Friend was very quick to help me with a replacement. And we have had no problems since. It's a great sounding 'plinky' banjolele.

                Purchased this banjolele just after Christmas. I already own a Lanikai LBU-C Concert Banjolele and thought this one looked like fun. It was no mistake to make this purchase. Very well made and sturdy. Talk about fun to play. Great sound, great kooks and just a lot of fun to play. I would recommend this uke to anyone who plays, you will be glad you did.
