Greg and Janet Deering run the premier banjo company in North American and build more banjos than all the other banjo makers combined. This 35th commemorative banjo is the personal project of Greg Deering and he combines several of his latest technological advancements in this banjo; the Eagle flange, The Aught Six tone ring, the Red-maple rim, the Deering special alloy tailpiece; all put together to make one of the finest sounding we have heard. And as for the looks…well… stunning, spectacular, awesome, elegant…where’s my thesaurus !
At the 2011 NAMM show the 35th anniversary, serial # 1 was one display. See the photos of this banjo with the proud Deering family below. This georgeous banjo inspired me to specially request one of these banjos in a more affordable format; without the engraving and gold plate.
Fortunately, Greg and Janet agreed to build this incredible banjo and after a 9 month gestation period…this baby has arrived!!
Whoa…what a banjo ! It just doesn’t get any better than this !
