OVERVIEW

Deering quality in a six-string.

The rolled steel rim of the Boston creates a bright, powerful banjo tone that is unique to Deering banjos. The clarity and crispness of this guitar-tuned, 6-string banjo gives the guitar player a true banjo sound, with guitar tuning convenience. The satin finish mahogany neck and resonator visually enhance the bright nickel plated metal parts. The fingerboard inlays are delicately beautiful and the tuners are precise and smooth. The fully adjustable truss rod allows the player to fine tune the string "action" for any unique and highly personalized playing style.

The humbucking Kavanjo pickup amplifies to extremely high volume without feedback. There are no batteries to change and the pickup works great in guitar amps, acoustic amps, PAs and many other amps the player might have available. The pickup is compatible with effects pedals and volume pedals. The pickup has little to no effect on the acoustic sound of the banjo. Played by artists like Keith Urban and Taylor Swift, this banjo is a beautiful compliment to any musical style and every guitarists arsenal.
