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.
