Nicely made six-string banjo.

This 6-string banjo is an ideal addition to a guitar player's collection. It is tuned just like a guitar and doesn't have the short top string. You can play lead figures and make chord shapes just as you ordinarily would on a guitar, but get a bright, ringing banjo tone. It is a great instrument to work out some right-hand banjo patterns while getting instant gratification. Get banjo sensibility on some tunes without slaving over proper banjo fretboard technique. As far as the instrument itself, its construction and playability are remarkable at the price. It is a fantastic-playing banjo that gives someone starting out a good quality instrument; pros and more experienced players will appreciate the playability, as well as having another tone in the toolbox. Vibrant and alive, this Hoedown banjo delivers excellent tone and playability.
