4-string Plectrum Banjos 

These 4-string plectrum banjos are tuned C G B D. The neck is the same length as a five string banjo and the tuning is the same as a 5-string in C tuning. They can also be tuned to "chicago tuning" which is the same tuning  as the top four strings of a guitar. D G B E. Chicago tuning is popular for guitar players wanting a new sound without learning a new key or changing chord positions they are used to. You can also tune a 4-string tenor banjo to chicago tuning.
