I've never been much of a guitar player so I picked up a Banjocaster off Craigslist a few month back. It's a lot of fun!
Here's a song where I use it for both lead and bass.
For bass I ran it through an octave pedal in GarageBand. For lead it's the Old Time Tremolo preset.
A little after the 3-minute mark there's a solo where I switch off the tremolo and turn on some overdrive if you want to skip ahead to hear it with that tone.
If you've been thinking about picking one of these up, I'd recommend it.
It's also been good for picking quietly on the couch while my girlfriend's sleeping.
