The Deering GDL Greg Deering Limited Banjo caries Greg Deering’s name due to the affection Greg has for this special banjo.
Elegant Abalone and pearl inlay and trim with Ivoroid binding beautifully sets off the highly figured English Curly Walnut neck and exotic burl walnut resonator.
English Walnut not only gives a sweetness to the trebles not normally heard in a bright banjo, it has beautiful figuring and burls.
This is a truly professional banjo that offers power, instant treble response and a lovely clear bell tone.
The Deering GDL model is regularly stocked at The Twelfth Fret.
