Lame Horse Instruments Guitar: Fiberskyn top Gitjo
Please Call to Inquire
Our first Gitjo, an instrument tuned and played like a guitar, with the sound of a banjo. A very comfortable, 25.5 inch scale, guitar neck is mounted to a banjo pot. This is no ordinary banjo pot. It is not laminated like most. It is made from 48 blocks of highly figured fine hardwoods such as maple, mesquite, koa, and bubinga glued up into a dodecagon (12 sided polygon) and then turned to the perfect diameter on a lathe. The laminated neck fits perfectly to the body via a precisely machined piece of bell brass. All of this, coupled with a custom Lame Horse bridge and tailpiece give the Gitjo the perfect look and the perfect sound. Custom case included.
