New for 2012, the AC-6 Resonator Banjo may stray a bit from the traditional wood body banjo design, but it packs a punch like no other and will stand up against any 6-string banjo in it's price range. The rim and resonator are molded from a composite material that is strong, consistent, and durable. Whether this is your first 6-string banjo, or you seek the ultimate travel banjo, this banjo packs more than enough heat to echo through the hills and shine in any campfire jam! Padded gigbag included.

Includes 1 Year Warranty

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreEdmonton North, Alberta
Bought this for a recording session and Live use. Spent most of the session trying to keep it in tune. Stock setup was poor, but passible. Tone was "ok". The action was pretty high, and the neck was flexible to the point of rubbery. Bringing it home, I spent a good 3 hrs trying to get it setup and playable/sounding good/able to hold tuning. After a long,tedious setup I went to try the pickup only to find tap hat the Jack was installed so close to the head, you cannot get a 1/4 cable into the jack. Enough... This piece of junk it going back to the store.
