I have had this banjo for just over a year. It plays great, stays in tune, sounds clear and bright.As we lefties know, there is not a lot of models for us. Gold tone makes a quality product. Folks a Long& Mcquade are great.

I bought this to learn banjo. I compared the sound of the Epiphone mb-200 and this banjo. Both sounded great even compared to more expensive banjos. I think the cc-50 sounded slightly better but they were very close in sound. The quality seems very good. It stays in tune well. It looks good too. Personally I like the dark wood on this banjo. Overall I am happy with this banjo and would recommend it to a beginner or more advanced player.
