The Gitjo was made to offer guitarist a chance to make that banjo twang. The six string banjo is not a new concept, however this Lame Horse Gitjo is full of style and has a sound everyone loves. The tone ring is crafted from superbly figured Bubinga and Mesquite with a lovely Diamond pattern ring. The multi piece neck meets the body via a thick brass plate that add wonderful sustain and power. This version, the Elite, sports a high-gloss finish and better skin top for greatly improved tone and projection. It's a really fun instrument that will give you a whole other sound on stage, in the studio or on your front porch. From Blues to Old Time to Celtic you'll love having this in your arsenal.

"Every guitarist should have one of these, it's so much fun. I love playing blues on this little beast and it offers a wonderful color for recordings, jams and bands. Stand out at your next jam with that barbaric twang." - Paul Heumiller
" For those guitarists who want to sound like a banjo player, there isn't anything better than one of these Lame Horse "gitjos" from Jenkins. They are easy to play and can be tuned to any number of tunings to make them sound how you like." - Al Petteway
