Hey guys. I already gave up banjo a while ago after this cruddy one my parents got me way back for my 14th b'day was found to have a dogey peg and a rotten neck deep inside it's wood.

What's really annoyed me is my parents said they paid a lot for that banjo and got it from a really good place (they never gimme specific details about gifts they get me - but I trust them on that). And I wanna play again - but this banjo guy I took mine to this year said that because banjos are so hard to come across here you'll often get ripped off for a banjo that was made a piece of trash even from new basically.

So, what I wanna know is what brands and types are actually good? And how much do you normally get charged for them where you're from? I wanna go hunt for one without getting ripped off again.

Aha it's okay, I read it just fine I rarely seem to see most people's typos for some reason :S Sorry I shoulda mentioned that - I'm looking for another 5 string with an open back. But I'll still note dean and epiphone when I go fiddle with some banjos in a music shop, thanks :-)
