It arrived beautifully packed. The banjo/guitar itself is very light, much more like a guitar than a banjo and that's a good thing. I play both and this is easier to carry around than any banjo I own. When you get it, the bridge is in a packet and there are no instructions on how to place it. That is a real problem for 95% of the people who will buy this. I have experience with banjos and it still took me two hours to get it right. I first loosened the strings and worked the bridge under them. After finding the sweet spot (the harmonics on the 5th, 7th, and 12th frets are the way to know you've set the bridge correctly), I took it all apart again: the strings were just dead and clunky.

I put on extra light Martin guitar strings and went through the whole process again. Remember: there is nothing in the package to tell you how to do this. It is unplayable as it arrives -- you have to set it up. I even checked YouTube to see if Luna posted a video how-to and... nothing.

With the extra light strings on it, it sounds much better. It takes a long time to tune because tuning one string puts others out until the clear Remo banjo head settles in for the bridge. The nut is a little high, making it harder to hold down the strings on the first two frets. I'll have to deal with that later. For now, I've found that it plays best if you play it like a flatpicked guitar, a mandolin, or an octave mandolin. Using a pick and playing tremolo makes it sound very Celtic... but the left hand has to work hard to get the strings down clearly. Gotta work on that nut...

I intend to make a video review very soon, but I wanted to put in a good word for this extraordinary instrument.

One would be hard pressed to find a better sounding, better looking 6 string professional grade banjo at this, or any, price. I have played many, many banjos, and while the Luna is lighter (as mentioned by another reviewer), it has something to do with the target market. Luna's mission is to make quality instruments affordable for everyone. These banjos (and most of their folk instruments) sell out faster than they can make them, because people *love* the sound, the feel, the action, and yes...the way they look on stage, and on the wall. They are art in multiple formats.

Luna is a reputable company to work with. They are quick to respond, and take their customer service very seriously.

So buying a Luna instrument through Amazon is a doubly great experience. If you don't like the instrument, you can just return it. If there is any type of defect, they will pay for return shipping. (This seems like standard procedure, but if anyone has ever had to file a claim to Amazon in the Marketplace because an independent seller refused to refund your money, or was not responsive, you know how frustrating that can be. There's NONE of that here.)

(Full disclosure: I am endorsed by Luna Guitars. What that means is that I get to play a lot of their instruments. They ask for nothing in return, but they always want to know, from endorsees or consumers, how they can make their instruments better. They don't ask me [or any of the endorsees] to write public reviews. If you have any feedback in that regard, you can always go to their website, and email them directly about your experiences, and you will be heard and get a response. Really...incredible company, incredible service. Very few companies out there like Luna today.)

When it arrived it was packed well. The setup for this instrument was easy. There had been some complaints about the height of the bridge but I think the action is fine and actually did not like the 1/2" bridge as well as the bridge that came with the Banjo. Love the sound and love the looks. The quality of this instrument is amazing; it is absolutely beautiful and sounds as good as it looks. An option for a pick-up with tuner would be the only improvement I would recommend. Luna products rock!

Not a great instrument - but fair all things considered.

It requires extra effort to make it playable. And for a non-banjo player, who doesn't necessarily understand the build differences between this instrument and a guitar - setting up is challenging.

Once again for what it is its okay.
