Everyone has a dream banjo, that "Holy Grail" of the 5-string, something to be proud of and be envied because of. I too have been bitten by the banjo bug (try saying that 10 times fast lol.)
I'd love to have a banjo custom made, something that's just mine. In a post I wrote earlier I had asked what everyone else thought of Sullivan banjos, I'd sure love to have one.
I've even been thinking about what mine would look like (or may look like, depending on just how fast I catch on to this picking thing lol.)
Here's what I've been day dreaming about:
A Sullivan Greenbriar with a natural blonde finish
Gold plated hardware
Gold plating on both sides of the fingerboard (not sure how to put that, it's like a "border" so to speak.) If that doesn't make sense I'll upload some pics I found (they're not gold plated or anything, but they'd give a better idea of what I mean.)
As for inlays, i'm not sure about what I'd want, various music notes perhaps? I still have plenty of time to sort that out lol. I have a picture of the arm rest I like, but the computer's not working properly right now so I can't upload it.
Anyway, that's my dream banjo, what do you think?

Sounds like a perfect banjo to me. You should have exactly what you want.

Well, why not Amber? Dreams are there so we can make them come true - I'm sure you'll get there with your dream banjo. Good luck, and best wishes from the UK. Bryan.
