Great Banjo

By JOHN THOMAS

from virginia

Comments about Recording King RK-R80 Professional Banjo:

This is my second Banjo and I absolutely love this instrument. Great tone, playability and looks. Instrument is put together very well. I wanted a banjo that looked as good as it sounded and I found it in the RK-80. Make sure it is set up properly. You will not be disappointed.
