      Comments about Dean BW6 Backwoods 6 String Banjo:

      I sit in with a local Bluegrass band but three guitars was a bit much, so I thought the Backwoods 6 would fit in nicely and it does. The tone is a bit flat but alas everything else is great. It is a hoot to play. The craftmanship is excellent. I did have to spend some time setting it up and getting the string action and intonation right but it was well worth the effort. I wouldn't record with it but it is awesome for playing live and practicing at home. unbelieveable value for the price. Dean did good with this one.

          i played this banjo in the store and it had one of the best sounds i have ever heard. it's perfect for people who like that "swamp" blues sound. the craftsmanship is amazing and if you like playing the blues then i strongly suggest this banjo.
