This question is regarding guitars/banjos, not appraisals. Hopefully someone can answer it for me.
My son is 20, and plays guitar (beginner to moderate level). He wants a banjo for Christmas. I was looking on Amazon.com, and there was one called a Gretsch Guitar-Banjo (Plays like a guitar sounds like a Banjo it says).
I don't know if this is what I should get, since he knows how to play guitar. Or do they all 'play like a guitar'?
And how many strings?
Basically, which would be the best banjo for first time banjo players? (It doesn't have to be on amazon, I would just like to know a few options of what would be best. Under $400). Here are some on amazon that had high reviews
.- Gretsch G9460 "Dixie 6" Guitar-Banjo
- Epiphone MB-200 Banjo, Red Brown
- 6 String Banjo Guitar with Closed Back Resonator and 24 Brackets
- 5-String Banjo 24 Bracket with Closed Solid Back and Geared 5th Tuner By Jameson GuitarsThank you!
