Banjo player tinker with there instruments more than anyone else. In the case of my first banjo, a Japanese "MasterClone," I tinkered with it to try to minimize it's shortcomings.
Since they are largely metal and adjustable we tinker when we have the time and courage.
I think posting setup tips and lessons we have learned would be interesting to share with others so they too can have some fun.
Here's my first tip.....
Only use the coordinator rods to make very minor adjustments to the neck angle. The string height from the bridge is best adjusted by purchasing different height bridges. For Bluegrass resonator banjos 5/8, .656 and 11/16 are popular with 5/8 being probably the most common.
Hope to read about your tip next.
