Description

The Romero Banjo Company has consistently blown us away with the quality of instrument they produce. Their banjos are some of the most beautiful we have found, the Romeros have successfully fused the old time look and feel with their own modern style and innovation. This is a Six String Gitjo that was built in tandem as a matched pair to the other Romero Five string we have in. There is plenty of sustain and woody tone to be had here, if you want that banjo sound but only play guitar this Gitjo is your ticket into the banjo world.

This Gitjo is too much fun to play, it has the banjo sound, but us guitar folk can still play it. The Romeros have a style all their own, and I really like it.
 
The wildly patterned skin head and the bronzed metal parts on this six string banjo make this one of the most beautiful instruments I've ever seen. It also has an amazing amount of sustain for a banjo.
