Jack, I've taken the liberty of posting your query to the Dixieland Jazz
Mailing List which has a plethora of banjoists on it.

Subject: [Band-in-a-Box] OT Any Banjo players?


Sorry for the off topic post.  Got a phone call today from my 
brothers wife looking to buy him a new banjo as a Christmas present. 
I told her I would try to find out more about it for her.  My 
brother does not (often)play professionally but is a talented string 
player (guitar, banjo, stand up bass). Apparently the 40 year old  
$50 yard sale banjo he has now, has seen it's day.  He plays a 4 
string tenor banjo and she is looking to spend between $400-500.  A 
quick google search gave me a diverse amount of selections and only 
added to my confusion.  I figured I'd ask this group because (a)
there seems to be a diverse amount of instruments played by the 
members and (b) it's the only music group I belong to and everyone 
is always so helpful.
Hoping I could get  some recommendations for brands, models, things 
to avoid.  
I'll also drop by a couple local music stores but wouldn't mind 
having some knowledge beforehand.  Thanks in advance.
