Mountain Banjolin
Be afraid, be very afraid...
Though rare, and unspeakably expensive, the mountain banjolin (not to be confused with the deep-water fido*) is still sought after by students of the frailing technique... usually men and women missing one or more fingers, or an ear.

Certain historians claim that the Civil War actually began when the first banjolin-fido interstate string-band got into an argument over who would take the solo in the obsure anthem "Them Your Beans (you gonna eat 'em)?"
