    Let’s hear it for an understated masterpiece banjo, without gaudy inlays or corporate logos. But play it well, and discerning individuals will wonder “what the heck is THAT.. and where can I get one?!”.

    Just taking a break from playing this banjo to write this. Great sound, very full…I can’t get over how nicely the neck fits my hand and how great it feels/fits all the way down. The combination of colors and woods, great tuners and perfect fit of parts make what I think is a beautiful banjo. No need for dots and inlay on the neck here, just a great playing nice looking banjo.

    Just got it yesterday and can’t stop playing. It’s got a wonderful tone and just feels right in my hands. The great craftsmanship and lack of pretty additions make for a serious, but elegant instrument. Well worth the wait.

    this banjo is everything i expected and wanted. Simple design and excellent craftsmanship. in fact the lack of ornamentation makes the design and execution really shine. but more important, this banjo has great tone. the Tommy has a crisp projection that i really like and without much effort it projects well with a band. An unexpected plus is that this banjo seems particularly easy to play. it is lightweight, the neck has great shape and feel, and the action is right. the hardware all seems high quality. thank you, Tim
