Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "fb 59 concert tone"
Overall: I had a deering goodtime 2 banjo before I purchased this banjo. I was very happy with the deering, but it didn't have a tone ring. I was reading the banjo forums and people were saying the the fender banjos weren't made that good because they are made in china. I own an American made stratocaster and the quality is great, so I took a chance on purchasing this banjo although it is made in china. The fender name is on it and I didn't think fender would put there name on a shabby banjo. Happily I was right. This banjo totally blew me away. Quality is out of this world and the sound is awesome. I couldn't be more satisfied. I would of payed twice as much for this banjo. Well done fender.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
