The Deering D6 banjo, is the perfect Guitar player's banjo. Strung with extra light guage acoustic guitar strings and tuned in guitar tuning (E,A,D,G,B,E), every guitar player can instantly play any and all guitar licks and fingerings, without learning banjo tuning. Built with Deering's '06 tone ring, special maple rim and one piece flange, this banjo is perfect for stage performance or recording: amatuer or professional. Imagine playing all of your guitar licks in your home studio on your six string banjo and giving your music that special sparkle that only a banjo can create. Plus, becuase of the extended range of the six string, this is a totally new musical canvas for new musical frontiers. Guitar players love the un-restricted ability to play every fret on every string because of the banjo's natural shape that exposes the entire ebony fingerboard. The mahogany resonator has the same high gloss finish that is on the perfectly shaped, slender, comfortable mahogany neck. The familiar guitar style tuners are used for secure and accurate tuning. This is the perfect banjo for the discrimiating guitarist.

Nowadays, they're used more in other styles, but they're still banjos. Strumming with a flatpick doesn't work - they have too much sustain. Flatpicking individual notes like a lead guitar player or Irish banjo player works great. Fingerpicking works great. That's 99% of what I do with it. BTW, this is my third six-string banjo, because I'm used to professional guitar necks, and my 5-strings have great necks, but I had to go pretty far up the food chain to get a 6-string banjo with a truly professional neck. Nowadays, I suppose the Boston B-6 would have a comparable feel, but that wasn't available when I first got my hands on one of these -
