Brian Brewer: Modified Gold Tone

Brian Brewer demonstrates an interesting modification he had done to his Gold Tone banjitar. This is a slick idea where he uses railroad spikes (used for capoing the fifth string on a five-string mandolin) and he changes his top string to an unwound high E. This allows him to set a root/tonic note on the top for the key. This gives him high drone sound of a five-string, but he can easily change to different keys. Very innovative--and he is a great player!
