Beginning Banjo Player

Comments about Dean BW5 Backwoods 5-String Banjo:

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!
