Gold Tone BT-14 Open Back Banjitar Six String Openback Banjo
If you have ever played a vintage 14" pre-war style banjitar and enjoyed the dark and plunky tone, the BT-14 is for you! Following the success of the Gold Tone 4 and 5 String Cello Banjos featuring the 14" pot assembly, we received a strong interest in the same pot assembly with a 6-string neck for guitarists. Instead of the traditional steel or gut strings, we have opted to set these banjos up with a nylon classical guitar string set that really contributes nicely to the warm tonal characteristics a pot assembly such as this naturally offers. Check one out today at your local Gold Tone dealer and add a little bit of modern vintage into your music!
