Doc Fossey Guitar for the 5-String Banjo Player - Includes free shipping and hard shell case

New product

The Doc Fossey guitar is an innovative instrument designed for five string banjo players. It allows the five string banjo player to employ the finger picking style of play into other genres of music beyond bluegrass, such as folk, rock, classical, and many more. The Doc Fossey guitar is a handmade, solid hard wood instrument composed of an Engelmann spruce soundboard, Indian rosewood back and sides, and a sapele (mahogany) neck. It contains sapele binding, abalone trim with a traditional banjo style abalone fret inlay, Gotoh® gold tuners with pearloid buttons, and a high-gloss finish.

If you play the five string banjo, or simply collect beautiful guitars, you need to see and play the Doc Fossey guitar.


The Doc Fossey Company originated nearly three years ago. Dr. Bruce Fossey is a banjo player and has enjoyed playing bluegrass music for many years. Dustin Fossey, “Doc Fossey’s” son, also plays the banjo, but has focused primarily on playing the acoustic guitar. After years of playing bluegrass music on the banjo with Dustin, Doc Fossey decided that he needed an instrument that would employ the banjo’s style of play in a more mellow tone that better blended with the other types of music he enjoyed and wanted to play. The Doc Fossey guitar was born. After talking to other banjo players, we learned a demand for such an instrument exists and therefore went into production. We have tried to provide an instrument for banjo players looking to broaden their spectrum of sound and style.

The tone is fantastic

Hi Ross.....I am very impressed with the guitar it is very well made and the tone is fantastic, I particularly like the 4th string tone. I am still getting used to the quiet sound and weight of the guitar compared to my banjo. I am going to enjoy playing both instruments equally!!. I think I am sending Carole (wife, she who must be obeyed) mad because I am still playing my trumpet as well!!!!. Thank you once again for your excellent service, it is always a great pleasure doing business with you!!.

Review for Doc Fossey

I am sure you get lots of accolades regarding your fantastic guitar, so here is mine too, the workmanship and quality is excellent, the inlay is beautiful, the tone is sweet…It is great to be able to play this guitar and not have to learn new guitar chords etc. The price for this type of quality guitar and good quality case is a true bargain!!!!. I am very pleased I bought this guitar untried and tested and going on the reputation and recommendation of Ross Nickerson!!.
