I love the Deering Boston Acoustic/Electric 6-String banjo. The steel rim matched with the guitar tuned 6 strings really gives this guitjo a powerful and clear tone. This banjitar is played by John Fogerty, Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves, and Eric Church - this is THE 6-string banjo you want if you are going to be playing on stage. Featuring the revolutionary Kavanjo pickup - this banjo sounds great whether it is plugged in or played acoustically. This is definitely the industry standard in six string banjos.
Call it a guitjo, banjitar, 6 string banjo, etc - create a new unique tone using your guitar chops!
