The Gold Tone AC-6+ acoustic/electric banjo guitar is a tremendous sounding banjo guitar, that is, a six string banjo played like a guitar. One of the features that makes it work so well is the composite material from which the resonator and rim are made. Instead of absorbing the sound of the instrument, these components reflect the sound out toward the front, making it sound especially bright and powerful to the listener. The bone nut, dual action truss rod, sealed guitar machine heads with chrome buttons, radiused fingerboard, slimline neck for easy playing, a smooth head to prevent scratchy picking sounds.. A heavy duty six string tailpiece, a Vega style armrest, and the 11 inch remo head combine to produce a very traditional banjo tone for any guitar player. A banjo/guitar like this will inspire your creativity to no end. There are several ways you can tune a banjo guitar like this, for instance the standard guitar tuning, the G tuning to sound more like a five string banjo, D tuning for open chords and more. You can let your imagination take control with the AC-6 Plus from Gold Tone.
Additionally the PLUS in the name means that the instrument is equipped with a sliding pickup system. The use of the coordinator rod inside the banjo to mount the pickup gives you the flexibility to move the pickup either toward the bridge or toward the neck to customize the tone you prefer when using an amp.
