    The Guitar-banjo has had a rough road. #1. They sound uniformly terrible...unless you spend the time to master it. #2 they're usually really really heavy.

    So, if you just cannot express yourself thru a clean sounding instrument and want to sound like you are truly suffering for your blues mojo...get a guitar banjo.

    Unless...you are one of the elite who can sound awesome even with a bastardized trash-can lid with strings.

    Example: Norman Blake on his 1918 Gibson



    And no, even though I own a large collection of banjos, I don't own a GB. Not that I wouldn't...I've never found one that made me think, "I have to have that!"
