Deering Sierra Model 5 string banjo
Greg Deering says about this Sierra banjo: “No one can buy a better banjo…they could buy a fancier one, but not a better one! Built with the same Deering -06- 20 Hole Bronze Tone Ring, three ply maple rim and one piece, cast, zinc resonator flange that are built into our top of the line banjos like the Calico, GDL and Ivanhoe, the Sierra is “A masterpiece of playability!”.
The full, rich and sparkling tone of the Deering 20 hole bronze tone ring is complimented and enhanced by Deering’s proprietary, tone enhancing, adjustable tailpiece, which is now fitted to all Deering banjos. The Sierra has a slender, fast and comfortable neck with an un-stained natural ebony fingerboard is polished smooth for fast easy fretting.
