5/6 string Cello Banjo Kit
Everything you need to make your own “cello” or octave banjo. This is a very versatile instrument, with several tuning possibilities and variations.
*The five-string neck will be sent by default. If you want a six-string neck you must specify in the “message to seller section” upon checkout. If you don’t specify I will send the five string. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to verify/confirm your order.
You can see the only difference between the five/six string model is the placement of the extra tuning peg in the center of the headstock, and of course, the nut, bridge and string-set provided will match the number of tuning pegs. The neck widths are identical.
This instrument can be tuned a full octave below standard G using a standard set of classical guitar strings. This string set allows you to choose from a wide range of tunings.
This kit is made from solid American Walnut and a handmade steam-bent white oak rim. It easily assembles into a piece of handmade art that looks as good as it sounds. Put it together right out of the box in an afternoon or make it a weekend project by sanding and adding a varnish.
