The Pot Assembly… The Pot Assembly is an aluminium casting based on a pre-war design. The casting acts also as the flat head tone ring and flange. 30 bracket hooks are fitted to give firm and even tension on the tension hoop. A single bracketed armrest is fitted. The tailpiece is a simple but effective flat plate type that accepts loop or ball ended strings, it is adjustable for height with a thumb screw. All metal work is chrome. A milky frosted top 11” diameter Remo ‘weatherking’ plastic head is fitted (top side coated) along with a sturdy ebony tipped 15.87mm (5/8”) maple bridge. Four chrome-plated resonator thumbscrews are provided to attach the resonator. The resonator is constructed from mahogany. It has a convex back and is fully bound in matching ivory colour binding. The resonator is stained in the pre-war ‘Gibson-style’ brown mahogany and is clear lacquered and highly polished.

The Neck Assembly… The guitar style neck is attached to the pot assembly with a single lag bolt and coordinating rim rod which gives you the facility to alter the ‘action’ of guitar banjo to suit your particular style of playing relative to the strings of your choice. The neck is constructed from mahogany, and is also fitted with an internal adjustable steel truss rod. The rosewood fingerboard is fully bound to match the resonator and is inlaid with pearl dot position markers inlays and small black side dot position markers at the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 15th & 17th frets ... The twelve fret is inlaid with abalone and the Dean Wings Logo The nickel silver fretwork is perfectly positioned, rounded and polished for smooth playing.
