I bought a Recording King (RK) open back 5 string. https://recordingking.com/p/rk-ot25-br
It came from USA, but took a bit of a hit on the tailpiece...which was bent.
I got one of these beauties to sort the problem. http://www.halmbocken.se/sterner/tailpiece/Tailpiece/Tailpiece.htm
It looks and sounds great.
I took a couple of lessons in clawhammer but didn't like the style...too frantic.
Settled on old style 2 finger/3 finger picking with the odd bit of bluegrass.
Learning from some books, and a DVD now.
A banjo playing makes anyone smile!
