Condition Used Mint

Description

Pete Seeger invented the long neck banjo when he decided to have a luthier cut his neck and insert 3 additional frets into the length of it. Instead of tuning the newly revised banjo in G, he was able to tune it to an E (Tuned E,B,E,G#,B) which allowed him to sing in that lower key. With 3 extra frets, this low tuned banjo not only sounds beautiful as a solo instrument, but it accompanies the voice with a deep, full and sparkling sound. This is a used banjo in pristine condition! Included is a 260.00 Kavanjo pickup system
