The SX SBE-245 is our best selling student banjo and with good reason. Boasting features, tone and playability that you would normally only find on a more expensive instrument, it represents great value for money.
Whether you want to learn to play the 5 string banjo or are simply returning to the instrument, the SBE-245 will get you started without breaking the bank!
Every SX SBE-245 is checked instore before being setup in our workshop prior to shipping. Be aware that similar banjos purchased elsewhere may not be set up making them unplayable.
Our checklist is extensive and attention is given to the following:
· The Tension of the Head
· Adjustment of the Brackets
· Adjustment of the Tuning Pegs
· Height and position of the Bridge
· Neck Angle
· Action (string height)
· Intonation…and more!
