Overview

The rolled steel rim of the Boston creates a bright, powerful tone that is unique to Deering banjos. The clarity and crispness of this tenor banjo is ideal for jazz or folk or Irish music. The satin finish mahogany neck and resonator enhance the bright nickel-plated metal parts. The fingerboard inlays are delicately beautiful and the guitar style tuners are precise and smooth. The fully adjustable truss rod allows the player to fine-tune the string "action" for any unique and highly personalized playing style. The fret scale is 21 inches. The short 17-fret neck is preferred by many Irish players and some jazz players. The close frets make fast notes and complex chords easier to reach.

Pro Coverage
Manufacturer's Warranty
Deering banjos with the lifetime warranty are only available through authorized Deering Dealers.

IF YOU BUY A "NEW" DEERING BANJO FROM A NON-AUTHORIZED DEALER, YOU HAVE PURCHASED A USED BANJO AND HAVE NO WARRANTY. When we send a Deering banjo to an authorized dealer, only that dealer or another authorized dealer can sell that banjo as new. If an authorized dealer sells a new Deering banjo to a non-authorized dealer, the non authorized dealer becomes the first owner and he becomes the bearer of the lifetime warranty; not a new dealer by transfer. When the unauthorized dealer sells that banjo to the consumer, even if it was never played or even touched, it is a used instrument and no longer carries the lifetime warranty. This is necessary so that we know how the banjo has been cared for between the time we ship it and the time that our customers buy it. We have no way of knowing how non-authorized dealers care for their instruments because we do not communicate with them. This also honors and protects the strong relationship between Deering and its treasured network of hard working Deering dealers. For your protection against theft and to ensure immediate proof of ownership, four digits of the serial number are visible on the back of the peghead on each banjo. The full serial number is inside the resonator. When you purchase a Deering banjo and send in the warranty card you will receive a Gold Credit card style ownership/warranty card. This gold card is embossed with your name and the serial number of your new banjo for easy identification. Take your Gold Card with you to festivals or when traveling so that if your banjo is ever stolen you can easily prove it's yours.
