This great 6 string guitar-banjo from Deering is in excellent playing condition and comes with it's original Hard case. Deering describes it as follows: Tuned like a guitar, guitar players can get up and go with this 6-string banjo. Our top selling 6-string banjo - now as an acoustic/electric model. This banjo is the preferred sound in country recording studios and in non-traditional bands. Taylor Swift uses this banjo on her Grammy award winning song "Mean". This banjo has big resonant bass notes that you don't find on a 5-string banjo, and also crisp highs for that beautiful banjo tone. Just plug it in and it's amplified with a great acoustic tone of the Kavanjo banjo pickup! Use a standard guitar cable to run your Boston 6 through your favorite amp, pedals, or straight into a DI box.
