The Deering Boston 6 string banjo has become the industry standard for 6 string banjos. Often called a guitjo or banjitar, the 6 string banjo has been around for over 100 years and has been played by the jazz and blues players like Django Reindhardt, Danny Barker, Rev. Gary Davis, Taj Mahal, and many more. Today artists are using it in all types of music.
The Deering Boston 6 string banjo features a steel rim which really gives it a bright and clear tone that is very responsive. It also features a radiused ebony fingerboard, adjustable truss rod, nickel silver frets, and more. Comes with a Deering hardshell case and a lifetime warranty.
