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
I'll also drop by a couple local music stores but wouldn't mind
having some knowledge beforehand. Thanks in advance.
