The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

SOLD!!! Deering Boston Open Back 6 String Banjo


Instrument Categories: ,

The Deering Boston Open Back 6 String Banjo is built specifically for The Twelfth Fret. Many guitar players find that they want to incorporate banjo tones, but don’t want to learn a new instrument.

The stock Deering Boston Open Back 6 addresses this need, but we find that the tone is too harsh. So, we’ve had Deering mate the standard Boston 6 neck with a Vega Little Wonder wooden tone ring pot. This offers the warmest and fattest tone possible for a six string banjo, and brings the weight down to about 7 pounds.

Uniquely Deering, the Boston banjo breaks with tradition and provides a professional quality sound at a lower price point by creating the rim from 3/16″ rolled steel which rings like a tone ring. Also, upgrading the accuracy of tuning by way of guitar tuners with a higher gear ratio than the traditional banjo tuners. The uniquely Deering Inlay pattern gives you visual beauty enhancing the great performance.

This banjo is the preferred sound in country recording studios and in non-traditional bands like the Keith Urban Band. You can hear this banjo played on Keith Urban songs like “Someone Like You” and his Grammy award winning “Sweet Thing.”
