A traditionally styled 5-string banjo with a bright tone.

The 5-string Dean Backwoods BW5 Banjo offers traditional construction and materials such as a 25-5/16" scale mahogany neck, a mahogany rim, and a mahogany resonator. The 22-fret rosewood fingerboard has heart shaped position markers and the metal armrest is decoratively engraved. Planet banjo tuners keep all 5 strings in perfect tune.

Constructed with attention to detail the Dean Backwoods Series is a notably solid line of banjos with very appealing prices. Reminiscent of their forefathers from the 30's, the Backwoods banjos present a bright tone with a traditional look.

Case sold separately.

    As reviewed by angela runte on 7/26/2012

    I bought this banjo hoping to teach myself how to play. I was a little nervous ordering online as I there were little reviews on this particular style. However after waiting for almost a month for the banjo to arrive in the mail I couldn't be more excited. The banjo is absolutely breathtaking. The pictures do not do it justice. The body of the banjo is a very pretty silvery color and the floral engraving on the metal plate adds a beautiful detail. Overall the banjo is fairly easy to play and the tonal quality is great. I would highly recommend this banjo!
