New Lame Horse Guitars Gallop in to TNAG ...

Say the name Lame Horse and everyone in the room's ears prick up. Loved and respected by clients and luthiers, Chris & Jeremy Jenkins (father & son) and their guitars are some of most unique and finest in the world. In fact I would go so far as to say they are pioneers in the their aesthetics, always pushing the boundaries with both their inlay work, body shapes and design. True luthiers to their core, and we are just so very proud to represent them.

This week we have been incredibly excited to announce two stunning new arrivals to our London showroom, The La Conner Show Saddle Pal Master Piece in Brazilian Rosewood and their world famous Lame Horse Gitjo...

Lame Horse Guitars Gitjo Guitar / Banjo - Pre-Owned


So this is what happens when a guitar and a banjo fall in love.

This is actually a scarily versatile instrument, obviously swampy blues and country work beautifully but it also excels in more exotic contexts; Amazing for Greek music and Flamenco (seriously!) and ragas.

The exceedingly comfortable 25.5" scale coupled with the slim neck profile makes for a great player, with a familiar feel that makes the guitar instantly accessible for a guitar player looking to expand their tonal palate.

This instrument is an ideal studio tool for those looking into new textures while retaining the familiarity and vocabulary of a 6-string guitar, but it also makes for a tremendous amount of fun in any context.

This instrument comes with a fitted Hardcase.

  • 12" Rim Lame Horse "Gitjo"
  • Solid Flamed Hardwood rim
  • 4-piece hard maple neck
  • Spalted headstock plate
  • Ebony fingerboard
  • Grover Tuners
  • 1.75” bone nut
  • 25.5” scale length
  • Deluxe Custom Hardshell Case
