There is a mint Kyle Creed 5 string being offered for sale in the facebook group "Dedicated to Old Time Music". I hope the guy doesn't mind me posting this. He doesn't have a set price. I don't have any connections with the seller or the banjo. But they don't show up very often. Here's a link, or search the group:

Expensive means...well...expensive. Relative term.
From the very few that I know have changed hands in the past year or so, figure 3-4,000.
Most likely the top of the market for these. I know a few folks who have them and they are starting to get up in years, so we should see more of these coming up for sale as people pass and the kids unload.
