Here, believe it or not, is a SERIOUS question. Really.

Back about 20 years or so ago my brother Ted got a great deal on a Japanese-made, custom-made, banjo (there are no labels on it). The guy who it was made for didn't pick it up, so Ted got it cheap. Well, Ted traded it to brother Tony, who plucked it a few times and hasn't touched it since as far as I know. Tony owes me $33, so should I work a deal with him for the banjo? Ted says it's got (or had) a very fast action (much like Ted himself, who enjoyed such a reputation during his pre-marital college days).
