Deering Boston Acoustic/Electric 6-String Banjo

1 item left

  • I love the Deering Boston Acoustic/Electric 6-String banjo. The steel rim matched with the guitar tuned 6 strings really gives this guitjo a powerful and clear tone.  This banjitar is played by John Fogerty, Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves, and Eric Church - this is THE 6-string banjo you want if you are going to be playing on stage.  Featuring the revolutionary Kavanjo pickup - this banjo sounds great whether it is plugged in or played acoustically.  This is definitely the industry standard in six string banjos.
