Got this as a Christmas gift in 2017, tuned it up right out of the box and was really surprised. I eventually re-adjusted the head tension with a drum dial (not that it was loose by a lot or anything like that but I am fussy), lowered the strings at the nut and bridge to my liking, installed railroad spikes at the 7th 9th and 10th frets and this thing sings and plays really really nice. Don't think you'll have to do a setup on this banjo if you get one. Like I mentioned, I'm just fussy and wanted to tweak it to my liking. It will play nice right out of the box. I play this banjo a lot and I'm still really happy with it. If your thinking about dabbling into the 5 string banjo world and want to try one, you won't go wrong with this MB-100.

Great banjo. Really easy to use and to learn on. Staff have been really helpful as well. Made some adjustments to it, that made it even better. I have been playing this banjo for over 2yrs at music sessions.

I purchased the Epiphone MB-100 open back banjo about seven weeks ago from Long and McQuade in Ottawa. This banjo really is visually appealing with clean lines and a nice mahogany colour finish. Even though it is an open back banjo, I have been learning to play bluegrass style banjo on it, because it is very lightweight which was important to me. If I develop any proficiency I may purchase a resonator style banjo in the future, but for the moment it is ideal for me, and good to learn on. It is quiet enough (no resonator) so that I can practice it at home without creating too much of a disturbance.

I have just bought this banjo, and I'm a fairly new player, being inspired to start playing from a friend. I have used his resonator banjo up until now and even though this one is open-back, it's just as loud and sounds as good, if not better. Though, this may not be the case in comparison with other banjos. But over all, I would recommend this banjo to anyone; out of the box, it needed a little tuning and stuff, typical of most new instruments being shipped, but once I got it to my liking, I couldn't put it down. Very satisfied with this purchase, easy to play, sounds warm, but with the ability to cut through a mix with those twangy, trebley banjo tones. Outstanding instrument.

I recently bought this from my local long & mcquade in calgary. Service was amazing, with it being my first banjo I did not know a thing to play, the sales associate was very helpful in comparing models and knew how to play a good tune :) This banjo sounds very warm and smooth with good twang when you pluck. Very well built, nice smooth finish. And you don't have to soundproof a room to play at night. The price can't be beat. I would highly recommend this.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
