There is an incredible history surrounding many of the Folk & Traditional Stringed Instruments that we sell at Musician's Friend. The Ukulele, for example, originated in Hawaii the 1880s. Mandolins evolved from lutes in Italy in the 17th and 18th centuries. Banjos on their modern style were said to have originated in the Caribbean in the 17th century. Compared to these, the Resonator guitar is a modern invention, having been designed sometime around the 1920s, as a way of enabling guitars to be heard in a big band setting, before the guitar pickup was invented. Thankfully you won't have to wait for centuries when buying from Musician's Friend, especially as free standard shipping now applies to all orders over $25, including many heavy items. With the top brands to choose from including Breedlove Folk & Traditional Stringed Instruments and Kohala Folk & Traditional Stringed Instrumentscoupled with our price & satisfaction guarantees, making traditional music is both quick and easy.
