Banjitars and 6 String Banjos

The six string banjo is very popular among guitarists who want the sound of the banjo without having to learn an entirely new instrument. The six-string or guitar-banjo was the instrument of the early jazz great Johnny St. Cyr, as well as other jazz musicians, most notably Django Reinhardt. Six string banjos are also sometimes called the guitanjo, guitjo, ganjo, or banjitar. Whatever you call it, we have a great selection of 6 string banjos sure to meet your needs.
