GUEST,Songbob Help: FIESTA banjos (7) RE: Help: FIESTA banjos 07 Dec 10

Fiesta banjo from Cracker Barrel? Not what it's cracked up to be, most likely. It's obvious from the name that the maker has no idea that a banjo isn't a Hispanic instrument. With that much cultural myopia, I'd bet strongly against it being a quality instrument. If it were $89 instead of $189, it might be worth the hassle of setting it up to play properly (if it can be set up, that is), but I, for one, would pass on it.

When people used to ask me for advice on instruments, I'd always say, 'get as good as you can afford.' "Entry level" instruments mean the entrance is in the sub-basement.
