Details: This is a one-string electric canjo, offered under the American Canjo Company(tm) brand by C. B. Gitty. These instruments are hand-made in the C. B. Gitty workshops in New Hampshire, USA. They are fun and easy to play, well-made and look great - all at a great price. We have built a special pickup and output jack arrangement into this model, so that you can plug it into an amplifier and make some real music! Note that these work best with amps 5 watts and above that have higher gain capabilities, and might not produce a great deal of sound with our batter-powered cigar box amplifiers. We also include a free 2-page "How-to-Play" guide by C. B. Gitty, along with two picks and a spare string! 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 it. It puts out a great twangy sound, perfect for practicing or back porch pickin'. These canjos feature beautiful necks that are made from antique softwoods reclaiemd from the farms and factories of New England. They are strung with an unwound plain steel string of .012" or .013" gauge. The special metal cans are labeled with a custom-designed automotive-grade vinyl American Canjo Company label. The frets used on the neck are nickel-silver "Medium" frets. Note that due to the nature of the wood used for the neck, the exact look of each instrument may vary a bit, and 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. Overall Length: 27 3/4" Scale Length: 24 1/2" Fretting: Diatonic Can Size: 5.5" Long x 2.5" Diameter
