Whether you are a traditionalist or experimentalist, this instrument will impress you with its tone and versatility.
This Celtic 6-String Banjo has the standard 25-1/2" scale of a guitar, with the traditional resonator of a banjo. While its design is geared towards modern Celtic jams, the neck will remind you of a warm safe place and the attack produced by the transparent head will whisk you back to pickin' on grandpa's porch.
For the experimentalists, use a standard EADGBE tuning for a uniquely accented guitar tone, or open tuning for punctuated resonant drones.

Comments about Luna Guitars Celtic 6-String Banjo:
This instrument was exactly what I expected, which is to say that I expected to have to do considerable setup work on it before I could use it. The head was very loose, the bridge was a good 1/16" too high by banjo standards (it was shipped with the bridge in the parts bag) and needed needle-filing on 2 of the string grooves to allow the strings to sit properly, and the strings were pretty dead. Neck relief was acceptable, though, so no rod adjustment needed. So - after tightening the head, shaving the bridge mounts, deepening the shallow grooves in the bridge, and putting on a decent set of strings, it played and sounded quite acceptable. The fingerboard was very well done - frets were level and properly crowned with no rough edges, and the fingerboard inlays were precise. All in all, an attractive instrument with acceptable sound and action for my purposes, but no premium quality here at all.
