A 6-string banjo designed by guitar players for guitar players: the Gold Tone GT-500 Banjitar.If you're a guitar player who wants that distinct banjo sound and resonance, the Gold Tone GT-500 Banjitar 6-String is the perfect addition to your guitar collection. Designed by guitarists for guitarists, the Gold Tone GT-500 6-String Banjitar gives guitar players the ability to obtain that twangy, bright banjo tone while allowing them to utilize their familiar guitar-playing techniques.
The most coveted 6-string in its class, the Gold Tone GT-500 Banjitar is traditionally appointed with a maple rim, a maple resonator, and a flat top steel alloy tone ring, and sports an 11" clear Remo High Crown head for superb tone and resonance. The guitarist-friendly neck of the GT-500 is carved from hard rock Canadian maple and topped off with a radiused rosewood fingerboard. Thanks to the standard guitar tuning (EADGBe), guitar players are sure to feel right at home when playing the GT-500.
While this banjitar already has excellent acoustic volume and good sustain, the GT-500 comes performance-ready with the unique Gold Tone Sliding Magnetic Pickup (SMP) when you want to plug in. This pickup accentuates the low end response while delivering those bright, piercing trebles that are typically associated with the "banjo" sound.
Other features include a set of chrome guitar-style sealed tuning machines, a 6-string Straightline tailpiece, a bone nut, a maple bridge with ebony cap and a "Gold Tone" engraved arm rest. Case not included.
