Piano is not O. K.

Accordion is not O. K.

Drums are not O. K.

12-string guitar is not O. K.

Bluegrass is played on:

mandatory:

banjo (Gibson resonator banjo or clone) mandolin (Gibson F-model or clone) 6-string guitar (Martin Dreadnought or clone)

optional:

upright bass (electric bass is accepted if you are T. Michael Coleman, but not otherwise) fiddle TIFKAD

There are no other bluegrass instruments.

The matter permits of no discussion.
