Which instrument most epitomizes bluegrass music?

Our poll this week is bound to generate some sparks.

We want to know which instrument in Bill Monroe’s original bluegrass band most epitomizes bluegrass music. Is it the beloved, all-powerful, everybody-loves-it 5 string banjo, or one of those other supporting instruments?

Let us know how you see it.

We look forward to your comments wondering how we could have left out the resonator guitar, harmonica or accordion.
