5/6 string Cello Banjo Kit
THIS KIT IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE BUT WILL RETURN SOON WITH IMPROVEMENTS AND NEW OPTIONS.
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.
