x3 thought i'd give yeh guys a try :p.. being around other banjo players will be refreshing.. i grow tired of being asked to play deliverance at school >.>;; (they cant even get the name right xD) , i play the 5 string banjo mainly .. and the only pic of my banjo online is.. on wikipedia xD it just says "modern banjo" guessing my banjo is just nothing special and of no great name ^^ but that wont put me off playing it, i have lately been wanting to change it though (remove the varnish.. take off the star on the headstock and the birdy on the back with the stars and paint over all the brown, and wood colour'd bits and make it black with a sunburst finish on the pot.. maybe some art on the fretbored.. BUT i need advice in what to do s:

You did the right thing joining BHO. Most people here are friendly, supportive, and helpful.
I would suggest NOT messing with the banjo you have until you've identified it and estimated it's value. You may have something worth keeping in original conditiion. On the other hand, without knowing more, you may have a piece of junk. I bought a banjo at a local antiques show for $50 that was in decent shape. It turned out to be an S.S. Stewart and the tailpiece alone is worth twice what I paid for the banjo, which I restored and play often (I play it one or 2 of my videos posted here).
Post a picture of your instrument here on BHO and ask about it. You can also browse through ebay to find something similar to yours.
