The Spamjo - Made in Tennessee by Henry Hoover

A Spamjo (canjo) is a fretted, single string, acoustic instrument with an American-sourced hardwood body and Spam can resonator. The fretboard is a perfect diatonic scale with flawless dulcimer style fretting. The single tuner at the head is a finely crafted Grover guitar tuner. A Spam can is used because the tonal quality and volume is unmatched - there is no finer canjo anywhere. Some other builders make similar canjos from pine wood and drink cans - as you can imagine, that's exactly what their canjos sound like (you get what you pay for).

The Spamjo is bright and loud like a banjo, durable, lightweight, and the most handsome instrument around!

Lifetime guarantee on the body, tuner, frets and resonator. You might need to replace the string once in a blue moon, but if your Spamjo ever has issues, we will replace it for free.

Shipping is only $15 here in the United States
