Gold Tone AC-6 Banjitar…A Six String Banjo Tuned Like A Guitar! Comes w/ Gig Bag
Availability: In Stock
The Gold Tone AC-6 Resonator Banjitar definitely strays a bit from the traditional banjo design. The rim and resonator of this instrument are molded from a composite material that is incredibly strong and durable (kind of reminds me of Ovation guitars). Most of all, this material is consistent, so that you're assured of getting an “A” grade instrument every time. The composite construction packs a sonic a punch like no other, and the AC-6 will stand up against any 6-string banjo...especially in this price range. If you travel a lot, you'll appreciate the stability and durability of this banjitar. With a resonator and rim that are impervious to temperature and humidity swings, the AC-6 will always arrive ready to play! The AC-6 is perfect for any guitarist looking to add some Southern Fried Pickin to his or her sonic vocabulary.
Guitarists will feel right at home with the 25-1/2” scale and 1-11/16” nut width. No need to relearn here! The fretboard is gently radiused, not flat, so it will feel comfortable...even after hours of playing. The nut is genuine bone and has a six-pack of high ratio sealed tuners for its neighbor. The fretwork is excellent with 21 properly dressed and crowned medium frets. The bridge is maple with an ebony cap and it sits upon an, 11" Remo Low Crown Smooth head.
If you are a guitarist and find that you want to (or your employers demand that) you add banjo to your skill set, the AC-6 is just what the doctor ordered!
Included with your AC-6 is the correct Gold Tone gig bag. It is nicely padded, fit well, and will help your banjitar survive the many places you'll be going together.
