  • Dean Guitars Backwoods 6 Banjo

    Dean Guitars Backwoods 6 Banjo - "Extremely bad."

    03/03/12

    This is a six string banjo which is tuned E A D G B E, like a standard guitar. It is designed for guitar players who like the sound of a banjo but don't want to go through learning how to play in the different tuning. This banjo has a mahogany neck w…

    Carlo Robelli B1G 6 String Banjo - mooseherman's review

    04/25/11

    This six-string banjo (known by some folks as a "gitjo") is made by Carlo Robelli. I guess it's essentially a banjo for guitar players. While I don't think playing regular banjo is all that difficult to learn, it's nice to have something that's strun…

    Dean Guitars Backwoods 6 Banjo - "Dean Backwoods 6"

    01/08/11

    This is the Dean Backwoods 6. Call it an acoustic guitar that sounds like a banjo, call it a banjo tuned like a guitar, maybe even a hybrid name like Banjotar? Guitjo? Either way it rocks. I keep one of these in my studio arsenal just in case a…

    Hondo Banjo II - moosers's review

    12/15/10

    The Hondo Banjo II is a basic 5 string banjo, the year of which it was made I do not know. A producer who I'm an assistant to has this banjo at his home studio where I've played around with it a bit but have yet to record anything with it. I'm not …

    Dean Guitars Backwoods 6 Banjo - moosers's review

    12/02/10

    The Dean Guitars Backwoods 6 String Banjo, or git-jo as it's known, is a unique instrument that combines that sound of a banjo with the make up of a guitar. This isn't the highest quality 6 string banjo out there that I've played, as to me this is a…

    Dean Guitars Backwoods 6 Banjo - "Dean Backwoods 6"

    09/01/10

    I'm 62, been playing on and off for about 46 yrs. Not as good as I should be. R and R, Blues, Folk, and bluegrass. Bought on E-Bay for $120.00. I used to own a Gibson Mastertone which frustrated me to death. I didn't want the learning curve. I real…

    Gold Tone GT-1200 - moosers's review

    05/02/10

    The Gold Tone GT-1200 is a 12 string banjo that has the same string configuration as a 12 string guitar, so I guess this is really as 12 string banjitar/git-jo. As you can tell just from this brief description, this is a unique instrument! I had no…

    Deering Goodtime Special - mooseherman's review

    04/26/10

    This is a nice banjo that is made by Deering. This Banjo has five strings. The banjo's features include a Maple Neck & Resonator, an added Steel Tone Ring, a Metal Flange With Sound Holes, and an 11" diameter. There is a nice satin finish, and an adj…

  • Carlo Robelli B1G 6 String Banjo

    Carlo Robelli B1G 6 String Banjo - moosers's review

    02/10/10

    The Carlo Robelli B1G 6 String Banjo is a unique instrument that has the body and sound of a banjo, but has six strings like a guitar. The tuning and the size of the strings is just like a guitar, so this is made for the guitar player who wants a ba…

    Fender FB-54 - moosers's review

    08/22/09

    The Fender FB54 Banjo is a pretty standard five string banjo as far as make up goes and is a good one at that.  It isn't an electric banjo of any sort so it doesn't have any pick ups or connections and I'm not sure where this instrument is made but I…
