I was happy to find out that Fender has a 6-string banjo and it's not too bad.

Sounds great, plays like a standard guitar and I think it's worth the price (bought mine at $430 CAD)

My only complaint is that the fit and finish could use improvement. For example, the round wood backing has a white mark that is supposed to line up with the center of the neck, but it is slightly off angle. Everything else about the instrument is solid.

Overall, I'm happy with this banjo.
