Paramount Style B 5 String Banjo Maple, 1922

Paramount Style B 5 String Banjo Maple, 1922

The Paramount Style B 5 string is built using Maple for the bulk of the wooden components, with a bound Brazilian Rosewood bridge and headplate. The classic, fairly complex inlay set is executed in engraved Mother of Pearl. There is natural wear and checking to the lacquer finish, and there is some damage to parts of the headstock inlays from previous re-gluing work, along with some cracks in the Brazilian Rosewood head plate – this is to be expected on an instrument nearly a century old.

Deering Golden Era 5-String Banjo, 2004

Deering Golden Era 5-String Banjo, 2004

The Deering Golden Era 5-String Banjo draws from the heritage of traditional bluegrass banjos, and delivers the tone and look of the classic instruments. Built during 2004 at the Deering shop in Spring Valley, California, this Golden Era is in good condition and has been cleaned and set up at The Twelfth Fret by Anne Hartman. We’ve replaced the head and installed a Presto tailpiece. The dark stain shaded finish really sets off the flame Maple used for the resonator and neck.

Deering Vega Senator Banjo

Deering Vega Senator Banjo

The Vega Senator banjo is the perfect “crossover” and parlor banjo. It is a light-weight, classic open back banjo, with a warm, woody tone with a lightweight tone ring that adds just enough punch and high-end clarity to play bluegrass with your buddies but warm, fat and woody enough to play in your parlor as a classic clawhammer or fingerstyle solo instrument.
