Caraya 4-String Mahogany Resonator Banjo with stand and Free Gifts - BJ004J8

Arrived well packed and in perfect condition! The wait felt long, but considering the trip was half way around the world l thought it was pretty dog gone quick! Came with a carry bag and tools that were not expected. Already changed to high g Nygut strings for clawhammer style playing. Looks like a little brother to my Goodtime 5 string banjo. Thanks for the good price and fast shipping!

I received the item today. The quality of build was better than expected. Only one star off for some paint job defects on the resonator from the factory. Shipping was fast from AUS to USA. Great deal. Thanks!
