A bang for your buck
Runar, 05.07.2016
Ever been to a nachspiel and you'll know there's almost always a guitarist there, and then another join in and it's more of a soundwar than music going? Then this will really make both instruments shine when playing togheter!

Was really happy about the sound and build quality of this "Ganjo" and had a blast playing famous songs in a banjo style.

The only cons of this is the bridge was made of plastic and atleast in my case the strings wouldnt sit well in it. so i had to file it a bit to make the strings sit better.

and the pickup while it might be great playing live i thought it lost a bit of the "banjo" feel. so i might mic it up instead of using the pickup. but nice to have as a backup.

Overall great instrument with minor tweaks to make it sound great for a low price considering other 6string banjos with a pickup even.

Guitarrenbanjo
Ludwig2140, 27.02.2014
Das Dien Guitarrenbanjo ist optisch gut gelungen.
Klanglich kann man von einer Banjo dieser Art ( 6 Saiten, Gitarrenstimmung ) nicht viel mehr erwarten.
Der Tonabnehmer braucht auf jeden Fall einen Vorverstärker.
Der mitgelieferte und nicht montierte Steg ist eine Katastrophe.Die Justierung, Höheneinstellung, und Nachbearbeitung der Einkerbung verlangt viel Zeit und Geduld.
Bei dem Preis nicht akzeptabel.
Die Oktavreinheit der Saiten bleibt immer ein Kompromiss.
Leider kenne ich keine justierbare Stege.
Die Saitenlage ist Geschmackssache, und kann zum Glück leicht justiert werden.
Die Bespielbarkeit ist ordentlich.
Insgesamt bekommt man ein schönes Banjo, das für Gitarristen eine gute Alternative darstellt.

Très bon instrument.
Christophe6383, 27.11.2014
Banjo guitare agréable à jouer, manche assez large mais confortable.
Son assez proche d'une guitare folk dans les graves, et plus proche du banjo dans les médiums et aigus.
Son sympa branché sur un ampli guitare ou une sono, mais assez grave, donc, une petite égalisation est nécessaire.
prévoir un système de fixation pour la sangle.
Très bon instrument, bonne finition.

Mit diversen Änderungen gut....
Andrea aus H., 25.12.2015
Optisch für meine Geschmack sehr ansprechend, auch die Verstärkung ist ein nettes Feature.

Leider war die Saitenlage mit bis zu 4,5 mm zu hoch, die hohe und tiefe E-Saite sprangen selbst bei sanfter Spielweise regelmäßig aus dem Steg.
Die Bundstäbchen waren schlecht verarbeitet (scharfkantig)

Aufgrund von Terminen, an denen das Instrument gebraucht wurde, nahm ich Abstand von einem ( bei Thomann möglichen) Umtausch und brachte das Instrument zu einem Gitarrenbauer.

Der bearbeitete die Kerben des Steges, stellte den Hals ein und glättete die Bundstäbe.

Jetzt ist die Bespielbarkeit gegeben und ich bin zufrieden.

Witziger Weise hatte zum gleichen Zeitpunkt ein anderer Kunde des Gitarrenbauers das gleiche Instrument mit den selben Problemen bei ihm abgegeben...

Vielleicht sollte man die Info mal an den Hersteller weitergeben.

Zusammenfassend kann ich nur 3 Sterne geben aufgrund des Nachbesserungs- Bedarfs.
