Ahh, the infamous banjolele. Fastest way to lose a valet.
Aaaaaahhhhh…wheeeeee. Now going down the Frank Turner rabbit-hole.
Is “guitar-driven rock band” a polite euphemism for ska?
I actually barked out a big laugh. Thank you.

Hey, I have a banjolele. But I also don’t have a valet, so maybe you’re onto something.
This topic does pop up regularly if infrequently. I recall reading some article in the 90s that claimed REM was responsible for saving guitar based rock. shrug.
What would be news is if the saxophone made a comeback in pop/rock. Seeing it pop up in 70s and 80s stuff these days it really stands out as a thing of its time.
If this actually becomes a product I might get one to piss off guitar purists who are already pissed about the signature ukulele.
I have a bagpipelele and have no friends
What’s good music to accompany the sensation of choice paralysis from too much new music becoming available?
Doesn’t one take one’s claw hammer and smash the banjo into tiny, tiny pieces.

try out some different Gretsch models
i absolutely love the way my electromatic looks and feels, and i would like so much for it to be my “primary” guitar, but gosh darn it will not stay in tune long enough to get to a chorus.
everyone knows “signature” guitars are gimmicky trash and no serious musician would deign to play one.
not my bob weir deangelico, though. that’s different.
There’s a lot to love about that.
Never not cool.
