Very pleased with the sound and tone of this banjo
Ross, Thought I'd let you know the RK20 arrived Thursday in fine shape. I'm very pleased with the sound and tone of this banjo.... I play better than I knew. You have a lifelong customer for sure. By the way, I'll be starting at the very beginning with your on-line and media lessons, as I think that will probably help with some bad habits I've picked up. You'll probably hear more from me as I work through them. Kathy, I received the "Blazing the West" last Tuesday. About three business days to get here, that sounds pretty good for all the way out here to Arizona. Thanks again, and may God Bless you both, John O,

The DVDs and case are quite a bonus
Hey Ross, The Banjo came today and it is everything I read and you said it is. Feels solid, plays, tunes and sounds great. I like that Snuffy Smith bridge also. The DVDs and case are quite a bonus. Thanks again for all your help. Now, back to practice I go. (=)=='=::}
