I wonder if I'll get any responses on this one. 5-string banjo players get little respect, generally speaking, (at least not like guitar players do).
My all time favorite is John Hartford, followed by J.D. Crowe, by Earl Scruggs, Tony Trishka, Bela Fleck, and Ralph Stanley (to name a few).
BTW, the banjo forum I frequent has no watch afficianados on it. At least I asked the question and no one said they were collectors of watches; just collectors of banjos.
