Following the success of the Gold Tone Banjitar line, requests were made for an on-stage solid-body 6-string played like a guitar. The ES-Banjitar, like a normal banjo, has an extremely fast response compared to a regular electric. Hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides are accomplished with incredible ease. Even unplugged, the ES-Banjitar banjo guitar has an excellent banjo tone due to the hollow sound chamber within the body. This instrument is great for country music, blues, jazz, or any style where a banjo tone is desired without the need for learning the traditional 5-string banjo. Only a few years ago, a 6-string banjo would have been considered a 'cheater' banjo for guitarists, but today it is well accepted as its own instrument and you will hear the 6-string banjo in many genres of popular music!

The ES-Banjitar features an 8" tone ring and banjo head, dual pickup configuration with a stacked humbucker in the neck position and a hidden humbucking pickup beneath the banjo head in the bridge position, volume and tone controls, Straightline tailpiece, mahogany body, maple neck with bound rosewood fingerboard, and low string action. The ES-Banjitar has a scale length of 25-1/2" and uses standard ball-end guitar strings. Final assembly and complete setup performed at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida. Available as a left-handed model.
