    Re: Gibson BANJO. NMC

    Check the classifieds on www.banjohangout.org

    There are several comparable Gibsons for sale at prices ranging from $2800 - $3500. I would think that $3000 is a fair price depending on condition.

    Re: mass produced instruments & size variations

    I should have added that I got it from The Mandolin Store. When asked, in their opinion, the Eastman was a better choice. Great service, advice, and a very nice setup on the instrument, too.

    Re: mass produced instruments & size variations

    I have never played a Kentucky, but I really like my Eastman 305. I've had it for about a year now, and am still impressed with the workmanship and materials. The tone (IMO) is very good as well.
