    Comments about Rogue Travel / Starter Banjo:

    Shipping tracking and notification were terrific. At Guitar Center, we opened the boxes and carefully examined the contents for any damage, and the banjo had arrived in perfect condition. Set up was easy and the banjo came right into tune. It has truly been a pleasure to play. The finish on the neck and fretts are what I'm so impressed with. There is absolutly no drag caused by either.

      I was ok with installing the bridge but not something that I would have wanted to do if I really was a beginner. Aside from that, it is a really nice banjo for the price.

      I wouldn't buy another one of these banjos or anything else

      Comments about Rogue Travel / Starter Banjo:

      You banjo had more problem then anyone could deal with . Would be better off to just trash it and take the lost. Such poor workmen ship or assembly. You should fire your quality control inspector. I bet this isn't the first complaint you have had on this banjo. It's not worth sending back for an exchange. Disappointed in your company and I will not recommend you to anyone and fact I will tell them to avoid your product. Thanks for nothing.

      Pros

        Cons

        • Delivered with wrong size bridge. Unplayable.
        • Not Consistent
        • Poor Tone Quality

        Best Uses

          Comments about Rogue Travel / Starter Banjo:

          Guitar Center should review required specks with all foreign manufacturers of their instruments. This banjo was delivered with the wrong size bridge. Was therefore unplayable and required a complete set up. Would not recommend this banjo to anyone under any circumstances unless it were free. Even then it would probably be best used as firewood.

            Comments about Rogue Travel / Starter Banjo:

            My 16-year-old son wanted a banjo for Christmas (he does play bass guitar). We didn't want to get one that was too expensive in case he didn't keep going with it, but also didn't want to get the cheapest we could find in case he DID keep going with it. We purchased this banjo based on reviews and the good things that the folks at our local (Akron, OH) Guitar center had to say. It wasn't a stock item, so we ordered it ship-to-store. The banjo is pretty darn nice, very nicely finished and looks like a more expensive instrument. He was able to get it into tune very easily. I don't play banjo or guitar, but my grandfather was a banjo virtuoso who played locally. I spent hundreds of hours listening to him play on the back porch, so I do know what a well-tuned banjo is supposed to sound like. Of course, his were very expensive and top-of-the line pieces, so I didn't expect this one to sound as good as those, but it really is very good sounding and a handsome instrument. Highly recommended for a beginner banjo.
