If playing banjo wasn't already completed and heavy enough...

Price seems a bit steep until you realize it can be a compact emergency car jack, a trench digger, and when worn down can be melted down to be formed into an nice little fishing boat hull.

That looks atrocious! The handles are in the way of picking. Maybe it would be better to make a tailpiece with little individual string cams--like on a harp--to retune or "bend" each string--instead of this monstrosity or Keith pegs or cams on the peg head.

A banjo is a banjo, not a peddle steel. And those things have morphed to the point they cannot even be called a guitar anymore.

I'd like to have one of these for my lap steel but I don't need it badly enough to pay $600 for it.

Still and all, I salute the people who are constantly trying strange new things with their music, their instruments, and their artistic impulses.

Where would the Banjo HangOut be, if nobody EVER thought it might be FUN to put a stick through a gourd, a hide across the gourd, and add a hunk of string to twang on?

And then somebody though that MORE strings might be MORE fun??

And then more and more improvements, until, here we are!
