Gretsch Banjos - G9460 Dixie 6
This Gretsch G9460 Dixie 6 Guitar Banjo is perfect for guitar players who want to take an easy 6 string dive into the world of banjo, or add the old time tone to your mix. We'll admit, this Dixie 6 is also just plain fun to play. You've got 6 strings and play this just like a guitar.
It's an amazingly well-constructed, minimal open back guitar banjo styled after the great banjos of the early 20th century. Featuring a vintage U-shaped Maple neck and fingerboard with Pearloid dot inlay, it's a comfortable and great looking player - The vintage Gretsch pearloid headstock is a nice addition. The Rolled Brass tone ring on this offers more volume, yet it doesn't take away from the sweet and rich tone already present - it just gets louder, like it's supposed to do. The 11" Remo head rounds out its construction.
This Dixie 6 has a classic look with modern appointments: 21 Medium Jumbo frets, a guitar friendly 1.6875" nut width, no-knot-style tailpiece, and Grover tuners. Perfect for all levels of players, beginners to veterans, the Gretsch G9460 Dixie Back Guitar Banjo is a great option for guitarists looking to branch out with a versatile hybrid.
