About the Canjo

Everything you want to know about your new Canjo!

Our Canjo necks are made from Hard Maple lumber, with real guitar frets and tuners. The finished neck is then sprayed with at least two coats of instrument grade lacquer finish.

All frets are clearly numbered on the instrument. The numbers in the songbook and on the songsheet correspond with the frets on the Canjo. Zero should be played as an ‘open string’ by picking the string without pressing the string down with your left hand. For the best tone, press the string just behind the desired fret, not directly on the fret or in the middle of the fret. Pluck the string with the pick.

Canjos are tuned to ‘D’ or ‘E’ but no tuning is required since there is only 1 string (unless you are playing with others). The string is a .010 gauge guitar or banjo string.
