Deering Maple Sierra
Finally, an all American Bluegrass maple-wood banjo at under $2000 !
Deering Banjos are now offering their most popular Sierra model banjo in maple !
Over the past year I have often asked Barry Hunn at Deering for a lower priced Maple banjo along the lines of the mahogany neck and resonator Sierra model. Though I dearly love the look and feel of the Deering Maple Blossom, it is beyond the budget of some of my customers who MUST own a Deering but prefer maple over mahogany.
Barry informed me in December that the shop is now jigged up to do Sierra model maple necks and resonators for a small up-charge.
We get the same awesome ’06 Deering Silicone Bronze sand-cast tone ring as used on the mahogany Sierra. Plus the maple resonator, unique Deering flange and rim that one finds on the Deering Maple Blossom.
We have the simple yet elegant look of the satin finish classic Sierra Banjo that we all love ….with exactly the same tone, hardware, and wood species found on the higher priced Deering Maple Blossom.
Plus this model features a delightful new inlay pattern on the fretboard. A lovely extra touch that really adds to the banjo.
