The Long Neck 5-string banjo was made popular in the 1960s by the big daddies of Long Neck banjo playing ...Pete Seeger and Dave Guard (Kingston Trio). Excellent in it's low open tuning for song accompaniment and versatile when a capo is fitted for standard banjo tunings. (you apply a capo to the third fret of this banjo and then play it the same as a standard 'G' banjo)
