Brand: American Canjo Company
Publisher: C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply
Details: This is a one-string acoustic American Canjo Company(tm) canjo (tin can banjo), handcrafted in the C. B. Gitty workshop. This little instrument looks good, is easy to play, and hand-made in the USA - all at a great price! This instrument is fretted diatonically, which means that all of the "in between" notes are left out - so it is almost impossible to hit a "wrong" note on this little gitty. It puts out a great twangy acoustic sound, perfect for practicing or back porch pickin'. These instruments feature beautiful reclaimed softwood necks that we have lightly finished with tung oil, and are strung with unwound plain steel strings of .013" gauge. The special metal cans are labeled with a custom-designed automotive-grade vinyl label. The frets used on the neck are nickel-silver "medium" frets. Overall Length: 27 3/4"; Scale Length: 24 1/2"; Fretting: Diatonic; Can Size: 5.5" L x 2.5" Diam. Please note that these reclaimed wood necks very often will have markings left over from their previous life such as nail holes, dents and other such features.
