This deluxe version of the classic '50s Gretsch “Dixie” design offers unparalleled value in today’s popular banjo styles.

The open back G9451 “Dixie Deluxe” features an 11” Remo High Crown Renaissance banjo head with a rim that's crafted from three-ply solid Maple and a White Laydie tone ring to deliver that classic twang that Gretsch banjos have been known for. The body is is bound by tortoiseshell and is finished in a luxurious amber gloss urethane which caters to the elegant aesthetics of the G9451. The 3-Piece Maple/Walnut/Maple neck is carved into a comfortable, vintage soft “U” shape, and is topped with an 18 fret Rosewood fingerboard with frailing scoop at the 18th fret. The vintage B&D position inlays featured on the fingerboard are reminiscent of the vintage Dixie design from the '50s, giving this banjo a vintage look without the vintage pricetag.

The G9451 “Dixie Deluxe” 5-String Banjo boasts nickel-plated hardware including die-cast Geared Planetary tuning machines, 24 tension brackets with notched hoop, a vintage-style no-knot type tailpiece and a vega-style armrest. Case not included.
