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 battery-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! Also be sure to check out the Canjo Song Tablature section of the knowledgebase over at www.CigarBoxGuitar.com for an ever-growing list of popular and traditional songs you can play on these instruments!
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 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.
