    Comments about Dean Backwoods 2 Acoustic-Electric 5-String Banjo:

    Not a professional instrument. The pick-up is weak and has a vary thin tone. When playing with out amplification, there is no where near the acoustic volume of other banjos. Be careful when adjusting the neck. It's very flimsy.

    Comments about Dean Backwoods 2 Acoustic-Electric 5-String Banjo:

    Bought this banjo as the price was right and I really like the look of it. Upon receiving it I noticed that the 5th string tuning peg just kept rotating in place meaning it could never be tuned. I re boxed it up and shipped it back. MF were very nice and professional. They shipped me back a replacement and it was in perfect shape. I am very happy with the banjo and the customer support. The acoustic sound is a tad tinny (lacking bass) but when plugged in this banjo really shines. A solid workhorse and a good deal.

    This banjo melts faces

    By Cole

    from Conroe, Texas

    Comments about Dean Backwoods 2 Acoustic-Electric 5-String Banjo:

    From the moment I received this banjo Ive been loving it. This is a very beautiful instrument, the dark mahogany stain gives it a classy feel and the simple neck inlay and the pearl tuners make you feel like you have the equivalent to a tuxedo. also the clear head allows you to see the wood on the back. The set up was easy and the packaging included the instructions for properly setting the bridge. It took 5 minuets. the head needed tensioning but that was expected due to shipping. Once set up I plugger her in and gave it a whirl. The pick up was nice and gave a clean bright sound. Also I have used it to play with my band at church and I have had no issues. also if you are looking for an acoustic electric open back this is the banjo for you. all you have to do to convert it is take the resonator screws off and loosen the brackets an bing bang boom you got yourself a beautiful old time music maker. This banjo is a quality instrument and is definitely a great bargain.

        My husband wanted to learn banjo, so I bought him a used version of this. It said that it needed repair, but when we got it, we didn't notice anything wrong with it, except bad strings. Easy fix. Taking it to guitar center to have it looked over just to be sure. Very happy with the quality and appearance of this banjo! Would definitely buy from musicians friend again!!!
