The perfect traveling companion, second instrument or aspiring beginner’s banjo, the Epiphone MB100 has been constructed with the manufacturer’s renowned balance of quality and value. This is not the company’s first venture into banjo creation either, in fact far from it, (Epiphone founder) Epi Stathopoulo’s first patent was for a banjo design and it was from there he led the company to the forefront of banjo design.
With its open back design, this banjo is excellent for bluegrass and string band music, as it has a high level of projection and a mellow tone. This design also makes it lighter in weight than its closed back counterparts, making it easier on the shoulder during play allowing you to concentrate more on your playing.
Precise projection and rich tone
Giving the MB100 its full, balanced tone is the combination of a mahogany body and a classic Remo banjo head, while making play effortless is a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard sporting white dot inlays. The headstock is fitted with a set of Epiphone’s nickel tuners to ensure steadfast tuning and reliability.
The Epiphone MB100 Banjo offers a specification level that is sure to impress everyone from beginners to seasoned professionals. Made by one of the most respected names in the industry!

So to cut it short I ordered this banjo and for the price I wasn't expecting a masterpiece. And of course - it isn't. However, the sound from this thing is perfect. It's loud enough and the tone is so mellow. The action is pretty high closer to the twelfth fret but it will do for a starter instrument. The bridge placing was pretty easy to do out of the box. I doubt I will ever be getting rid of this banjo, it is perfect for travelling and I can't really fault it for the price I paid. Free fast delivery was great also.
