Thread Name: Who made my Banjo
Subject: RE: Who made my Banjo
Well, Fender and China could go together, since their banjo line isn't really made in their guitar factories, I'm sure. Their earlier ones were probably Samick products, but a lot of that job-lot work has moved to China these days.
Unless it's a really high-quality model, $400 is pricey. That's a new price, not a pawn-shop price. However, if it truly is one of their top models, it was probably $700-800 list price, so $400 used isn't so bad.
Look up the model number online (Fender's site or Google "Fender banjo model XXX" and see what you find.
