I'm playing in a musical, and the production company just decided to drop a banjo player and have me (the guitarist, obviously,) play the banjo parts. Has anyone heard of any effects or whatnot that give a pseudo-banjo timbre? Something twangy, I guess?

A tele has the closest twang to a banjo.

Compressor, treble boost, sitar simulator (in a weird way) acoustic simulator...

Some combination of these would probably be helpful.

I was thinking something like that, but you wont get real close with a guitar, maybe a tele with the aforementioned effects

For the price of one of those pedals, couldn't you just find an old beat up banjo at a pawn shop or somewhere? Any banjo would probably sound better than trying to make a guitar sound like one.

Playing a Guitar doesn't mean you can just pick up some Banjo and be just as good on it as you are guitar.

Some people can do it, but not everyone.

I'd suggest an acoustic simulator, treble boosts, and a good clean channel.

Banjo strings are tuned in fifths while guitars are tuned in fourths. I don't have but ten days so I can't learn it.

get a tenor banjo?
or, you could take a bit of paper, crinkle it up and fold it into a small strip, turn your treble up and put the paper under your bridge-suprisingly close and since youll be in the pit and not on stage, you wont look like a douche with paper on your bridge.
