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.
