Hi guys and girls.
I'm looking to buy my brother a Resonator Banjo for Christmas - He will be a complete beginner but is a very accomplished guitar player, he was playing around on some at a local shop on the weekend and he was already cracking out tunes with ease.
Budget is 200-300 and would be looking for a resonator style for country/bluegrass playing.
Should I go second hand or try my luck with a budget option? I live reasonably close to Eagle music near Huddersfield who I think have a fairly extensive range, I just have no idea what I'm looking for!
