I was going to buy the CC-100R until I saw the upgrades on the "+" model. Real planetary tuners and a gorgeous glossy dark brown colour. Just needed to add some spikes on the 5th string and I was a happy camper. This is a great value for an intermediate banjo. It sounds great! The action is super and it stays in tune. Bonus!
