❌SOLD❌ Deering Long Neck Deluxe Open Back Banjo, 1988

❌SOLD❌ Deering Long Neck Deluxe Open Back Banjo, 1988

As an example of form following function, the long neck banjo was a Pete Seeger creation designed to extend available keys using just a capo. Placing the capo at the third fret, the long neck functions as a ‘normal’ 5-string banjo in G, but without the capo it drops down to E.

❌SOLD❌ S S Stewart The Amateur Open Back Banjo, 1899

❌SOLD❌ S S Stewart The Amateur Open Back Banjo, 1899

Shown here is a lovely S S Stewart The Amateur Open Back Banjo, Grade 2 model, built around 1899 after Stewart’s death in April 1898.  The ‘Grade 2’ designation means that it’s a more advanced model, not that it’s a second.
This fine open-back banjo features the original tailpiece, friction tuners, a period Rogers calf skin head and standard dowel stick adjuster system. This is one of the few of these banjos we’ve seen that have all the original finish, hardware, tension hooks and name plaque complete and in place. Apparently the original owner, a Mr. AL M. Dodgson, carved his initials into the dowel stick — no doubt a hundred years ago or more.
