Deering Boston 6-String Banjo-Guitar (used)

Regular price $ 1,599.99

Deering Boston 6-string banjo, probably late 90s (neck serial number is 6203, different from last 4 digits of pot serial number 4472). Had full setup by our luthier a few years ago by the previous owner, inspected and still in very good condition. No visible fretwear. Small ding near the first fret on the neck below high E. Very low action, crisp and loud sound. Hard case and strap included. New price on this model is $2,599.

The Boston 6 String banjo is tuned like a guitar so guitar players can instantly start playing this type of banjo. 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.
