As if getting a new guitar wasn’t enough (See my previous post about my new guitar) I also recently picked up another new instrument… a Banjar, or as some people call it a Guitanjo. Give up? It is a cross between a banjo and a Guitar. At first glance, it looks like a banjo, but a closer look shows that it has 6 strings like a guitar. It tunes and plays very similar to a guitar, but looks and sounds like a banjo, with a lot more “bottom end”. I just installed a new Seymour Duncan pickup inside, so it is ready to go! I’m sure it will make it to more than a few gigs coming up soon!
