The fifth string on a 5 String Folk and Bluegrass Banjo is usually the same gauge as the first string, as it starts from the fifth fret it is only three quarters the length of the other strings. This allows the string to be tuned to a higher open pitch than possible for the full-length strings.
The string pitches on the Bluegrass Banjo don’t proceed lowest to highest across the fingerboard. Instead, the fourth string is lowest, then third, second, first, and the fifth string is highest.
