Guitar World Staff Picks: Paul Riario's 2013 Holiday Gear Wish List
07. Dean Guitars Backwoods Six Electric Banjo, deanguitars.com; $369
Let’s face it: Today’s most popular music involves instruments other than just electric guitars driving the beat.
It seems mandolins and banjos are all the rage now and I must admit, I’m falling for the banjo’s charm. The Dean Backwoods is a six-string electric banjo, meaning, there’s no learning curve here for us guitar players.
Just plug in and start playing on its comfortable C-shaped neck, 25-½ inch scale and listen how loud the notes pop from its mahogany resonator back. It comes in polished black finish to make you look metal, even if you’re playing “Dueling Banjos.”
