We're not just talking about five-strings, here. If you could get one more banjo, any kind:
Irish Tenor, plectrum, 6-string, mando-banjo, banjo-guitar, cello banjo, etc.?
I'd have to say I'd like to have a Riverboat Banjo. All that cool riverboat music they play on those things... I just love that sound.
We all wish we could have just one more. If it didn't have to be a bluegrass 5-string, what would you want?
Hey, that's a good-looking tenor, right?! ha ha

Well Bailey, I love this question either a Gibson TB 11 conversion or a Stelling Virginian

Bacon Super 11" shell; fully perforated tone ring; popoff resonator.... BTW, the real riverboat banjos, in the days of the real riverboats, would have been what we call "minstrel banjos" today, because that's what they played back then.

Also by Vega Whyte Lady, circa 1924. If I can figure out how to connect my camera to this Mac, I'll upload a photo...real sweet banjo.
I actually really love the Vega in your photo! How did you upload that?
