I'm in the market for a banjo with at least 24 or 25 frets. I've noticed fretboards extensions are usually only on professional instruments, with a few exceptions, which makes a lot of sense somewhat. I find if I had an instrument that could reach a high E flat I would have all the range necessary to play most of the tunes I've come across in the keys they were written. Well I know it is common for banjoist to change keys to suit their instrument Fred Van Eps is my inspiration and so far it seems he only does this when absolutely necessary. Yes, certain Keys sing better, but the mindset, "We are MUSICIANS! Capo and endless retuning are superfluous" has been very inspirational and liberating. Thinking about getting a Brass Band banjo until something comes along I can't live without. If anybody knows where Princess Starlight's banjo is let me know
