Is a banjo an investment?

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

My banjo teacher encouraged me to buy a new banjo.  He said the one I am playing is like him taking me on my first hike, but telling me that I have to tie cement blocks to my feet.  He suggests that a decent banjo could be had for $1500, but that $3000 would be better.  A banjo is an investment, he says, and its value will only increase.  So now, we are on a new banjo quest.  Any thoughts on this or suggestions for a good banjo?

I just started playing banjo the past two weeks! This is something I have always wanted to do and here I am at almost 50 just getting around to it.
