Pioneer Spirit

The Epiphone Company was a pioneer in the development of the American banjo, obtaining the first banjo patent in the United States in 1917, at the dawn of the banjo's impressive popularity during the first decades of the 20th Century and burgeoning Jazz age. In fact, vintage Epiphone banjos are very valuable and highly sought after by collectors today as they are considered among the finest instruments in history.

Easy Translation

The MB-100 offers a fun, economical banjo that draws on the century's-worth banjo-making experience of Epiphone and results in a quality instrument, still made with great care. This addictive banjo plays like a real banjo because it is designed by banjo experts. It is remarkably loud for its slightly smaller open-back body and has a nice, crisp banjo tone. The playability also comes from the fact that it still has a full-scale neck.

It also has a poplar composite fingerboard, traditional floating poplar composite bridge, and Chrome hardware.

This is my third MB100 (I gave the others to students). Pretty good right out of the box. Just set the bridge, tune up and go. No frills; great travel banjo, as it's really light. Workmanship is excellent for such an inexpensive instrument. I've even recorded with it, and it sounds amazing. Haven't needed to use the Manufacturer Support.
