GUEST,Raven Help: Banjo - newbie buying tips wanted (26) Banjo - newbie buying tips wanted 23 Sep 02

Hi everybody --

I've been dinking around on a borrowed banjo, and realize I'm hooked. Yes, I'm going over to the Dark Side.

So I'm interested in buying one of my own. I know nothing about manufacturers, styles, how to determine quality -- nothing! I'd like to get one that's not too fancy to start off with, since (a) I'm far from flush and (b) it would be insulting to submit a fine instrument to such poor playing.

Can some of you veterans with time to kill on a new convert's behalf help me out?

Thanks! Raven
