Product Description

"...they won't believe it back home, none of them, I wouldn't have believed it myself sitting out here waiting for some monster to appear: that's why we've got to take him." - Dr. Mark Williams (Richard Denning, "Creature of the Black Lagoon" 1954)

An excellent throw back to the creature features of the mid-1900's, this one-string acoustic canjo is 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. This movie poster design is reprinted under the premise that it is in the public domain with no active registered copyright.

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 label featuring the classic movie poster from "Creature of the Black Lagoon". The frets used on the neck are nickel-silver "Medium" frets.

Overall Length: 27 3/4"
Scale Length: 24 1/2"
Fretting: Diatonic
Can Size: 5.5" Long x 2.5" Diameter
