About This Listing

The R&D work is complete and this new model is ready for sale! Based on a 20-inch baritone ukulele scale length and tuning. This banjo carries a dgbe tuning similar to a standard guitar's highest pitched four strings in order. Hence the moniker, Guitar-Banjo Hybrid. If you know chords or scales on a guitar, you already know them on this banjo. It's been designed to be a guitar or ukulele players natural extension into the banjo world. Thereby enabling you as an artist with a completely new tonal palette to create from.

Features:
Unique 10" solid hard maple precision block rim.
Matching hard maple neck with dual integrated carbon fiber reinforcements.
Beautiful Bolivian rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot position markers.
Figured maple peghead overlay
Gotoh planetary geared banjo tuners
Heavy duty brushed stainless steel tension hoop
High quality rim hardware that is all made in the USA/Canada
Fluorocarbon string set for re-entrant dgbe tuning.
Durable yet supple and smooth hand rubbed oil finish.

This is really a nice instrument that plays just beautifully! It has a slightly warm yet clear/focused old time banjo tone with great sustain, projection and volume. It has a roomy 1 5/16" nut width and a really comfortable neck shape. The action is great for strummers and pickers alike. You'll definitely be impressed with the quality, playability and tone of this instrument!

*Gig bag included*

A little about the brand:
My name is Jamie Ryan and I’m a luthier in Omaha Nebraska. I started Songbird Stringed Instruments as my brand to bring to market some new designs of instruments that I’m really excited about. Over the past couple of years, I’ve produced quite a few of these banjo-ukulele hybrids and have really been able to get everything perfected in the design. These new banjos are the result of that process and are pretty special in my opinion. I also produce a 17” scale tenor banjolele with the same oversized 10” rim if you’re looking for one of those.
