About this banjo
The top-selling Rover® banjo line is proud to introduce their finest model yet–the Rover® 45 series! Of great interest to the Traditional Jazz fraternity is our model RB-45P Plectrum 4-string banjo. Tuned similarly to the classic 5-string, but without the short 5th string, the plectrum tuning offers deep, rich bass tones and close harmony chords at your fingertips. The novel aluminum rim with built-in tone-ring is a strong, lightweight assembly that is unaffected by changes in temperature and humidity–it gives you a clean, crisp tone with plenty of volume. The slim, professional neck and correct, vintage-styled resonator are identical to those on the costliest professional models, and the “fiddle-shaped” headstock is right out of the 1920’s–the banjo’s Golden Era. Smooth, accurate geared tuning machines and a deluxe tailpiece and armrest–all in gleaming nickel-plate–complete this remarkable, affordable banjo–the Rover® RB-45P!

I would recommend them to anyone and everyone
Fantastic banjos sold by fantastic people. I have bought two banjos from Banjo.com and about to buy my third from them. These guys are just great people to go business with; knowledge, banjo players themselves, and just super nice. I do business with them because they are not just looking to sell my any banjo. They provide great input based upon what I want and need; not just what cost the most. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone interested in getting a banjo.
Highly recommend them to others
Barry at Banjo.com helped me make a great choice on purchasing a new banjo. He answered my emails and phone calls promptly. After a few conversations I went with his newly designed Bish Line Coal Dust. I ordered it and he kept me updated on its progress. It arrived in perfect condition and it's even nicer than he described. I will keep Banjo.com at the top of my list for any future purchases and would highly recommend them to others. Thank you again to Barry and his staff.
I couldn't be more pleased with this lovely instrument and the customer service
I recently purchased a Deering Sierra mahogany open back banjo from Banjo.com. Since I live in north Georgia, only two and one-half hours from the home of Banjo.com, I was able to visit the Banjo Barn where Barry give me the opportunity to "test drive" several banjos and he assisted me in narrowing down to my final choice. I must say, I couldn't be more pleased with this lovely instrument and the customer service I received from Barry and Banjo.com. Thank you!
