17 Fret vs 19 Fret: What’s the Difference?

mcneela-banjo-workshop.jpgA 19 fret banjo has two more frets than a 17 fret banjo, meaning it has a longer neck and fretboard.

As you can imagine, more frets also means more notes. This can be helpful in opening up opportunities for new repertoire or ways of playing tunes. Due to its larger size, the strings on a 19 fret banjo are usually wound to a higher tension. This creates a slightly brighter tone and more volume.
