The Beansprout Mini Five String Banjo

A fun hybrid of the five string banjo and the ukulele, perfect for banjo players looking for a smaller and higher pitched instrument or the uke player looking to branch out.  I recommend cGceg tuning, but can be retuned easily to many nearby tunings. Available in walnut or maple, with pistachio accents.  All North American wood and brass hardware.
