Dave Guard of the Kingston Trio, Pete Seegar were pioneers of the 'Long Neck banjo' from the late 1950s. Almost fifty years after Tom Dooley shot to the top of the charts for the Kingston trio, the Trio is still on the road thirty weeks a year, bringing back all the great memories and making new ones. Dave plays a 'Long Neck' Deering Banjo'. A great banjo for accompanying singing and playing in those lower voice keys.

More Details From The Deering Banjo Company:

We call this first model of the Deering line the Boston to acknowledge the people of Boston who produced many fine banjos in the early 20th century. The thick, steel rim, creates extraordinary volume and a sound similar to a tone ring banjo in a very affordable banjo. This rim’s powerful, bright, clear tone is ideal for both parking lot picking and in the recording studio.

The exotic, sometimes brightly colourful, un-stained, natural ebony fingerboard is polished smooth for fast easy fretting. We’ve carved this neck in a comfortable shape for easy reach to all of the strings and frets for pickers with all kinds of hand shapes and sizes.
Close your eyes and compare this banjo to anything else in it’s price range. We think you’ll love it!
