One of my most popular style banjos is the Bottle gourd 5 string fretted.  Always an attention-getter, these guys produce a fantastic sound incorporating 2 skins and 2 sound ports. This one has a Radical peghead, a Cherry neck, dyed in Brick red. The bottle Gourdie will be a great addition to your banjo collection.
