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.
