The banjo guitar, is known by many names, most commonly banjitar, but also: guitanjo, guitar banjo, guitjo, banjar, bantar or ganjo. It is a six-string instrument consisting of a six string guitar neck attached to a traditional bluegrass banjo body. It is tuned like a standard guitar played by guitarists who desire the sound of a banjo.

The instrument should not be confused with the six-string bluegrass banjo (played by Sonny Osborne and others), which retains re-entrant banjo tuning and a high-pitched drone string, simply adding a low G string to the five string banjo, nor with the zither banjo, a similar instrument from the late 19th/early 20th century, which was made in both five- and six-string models.
