OVERVIEW

With a sparkling good-time sound and feel the Gretsch G9460 Dixie 6-String Banjo displays solid modern craftsmanship while authentically evoking the company's innovative banjo models of the early 20th century. Tuned like a regular guitar, it's a great crossover instrument for guitarists seeking that "Banjo" sound and also benefits from the 6th string with a deeper tone and longer sustain. It has a maple plywood rim and features a traditonal open-back "Claw-Hammer." The maple neck and fingerboard feature dot inlays for precise fingering. This Dixie 6-String Banjo is a splendid Southern surfeit of outstanding sound, performance and value for established artist, seasoned player and eager student alike.

Gretsch is proud to take players on a musical journey through nearly a century of great Gretsch history by introducing its Roots Collection of acoustic instruments. This exciting family of banjos, mandolins, resonator guitars, ukuleles and Rancher acoustic guitars feature classically authentic Gretsch designs that transport players to a bygone era well before the company made its acclaimed 1950s entry into the electric guitar world.

Case sold separately.

The additonal string adds depth and sustain while making it easy to pick up for guitarists.

      I wanted to learn how to play the 6 string banjo. Other than heavier than expected, I love the sound!

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9460 Dixie 6-String Banjo:

        The Gretsch Dixie 6 is a well made, affordable six-string guitar. I wouldn't use it every day, but it's great when you need to add a banjo sound to a track. It's really only a fingerpicker's instrument - strummers won't be happy with it and vice versa.

        The Dixie 6 ships with the bridge un-set and fairly slack strings. You'll need to install the bridge in the correct location (hint: measure from the nut to the 12th fret, duplicate that measurement to the head and raise the bridge at that spot).

        My only complaint is the no-knot tailpiece. Loop-end guitar strings are a little hard to find (they're available online - D'Addario makes 'em). I wish that Gretsch had come up with a decent ball-end tailpiece.

        Bottom line: yes, I'd recommend the Dixie 6 to guitarists who want to add the occasional banjo sound to their gigs and tracks.
