Inexpensive asian made banjo from the 1970's or 1980's
Not worth a lot to resell, but should be good enough to play and enjoy.
This guy (with a little help from his cat) will get you started.

Thanks Mike! Maybe it's a sign to learn me some banjo! I've played guitar and bass since I was a kid, and have developed a sincere appreciation of bluegrass over recent years. I'll have to give it some TLC and see where it leads!
You already know your way around a fingerboard.
So, learn G, E minor, C, and D7, and there's your first ten thousand songs!
Foggy Mountain Breakdown is G, Em, G, Em G, D7, G.
Dueling Banjos opening is just a SCALE exercise:
B C D B C A B G A, while ALSO pinching the 1st & 5th strings.
And the FAST part is just variations on G, C, and D
I think that is much earlier then the 70/80's. Looks late 60's to me.
