If you are ever in the Puyallup, WA area, give me a call and come by and try one of my long necks! Come by for and try the long neck. It is a unique experience. They have a totally different dynamic than the standard banjo.
Come and trying one of my long necks as Eric, from Chicoago is doing here.
Facebook Quote : Keith Potger Yep, it sounds really good but I will need to do a bit of adjusting to get the action down a fraction for my liking. It came from the USA and has no make because it was hand made from individual pieces, neck, rim, banjo pot etc. Jonathan Beyer is the guy and you can google him to see some of his other banjos. Tuning for the long neck is an open E chord: 1st B, 2nd G#, 3rd E, 4th B and the 5th string is E. When it is capoed up three frets to bring it up to standard banjo tuning the first four strings form an open G chord and you would have to tune the 5th string up to G. Haven't played banjo for so long I'm really rusty so it will be a while before I come out of hiding with this beast. Some peeps will be very glad I'm sure to never hear a banjo in their lifetime but this is a lovely mellow instrument and will give me a huge interest in performing some of the repertoire of Pete Seeger next year. In fact I may change my name to Pete Seeker for the occasion.
