Sold!  Deering Sierra Maple 5-String Banjo, Walnut, 2010

The Sierra is Deering’s most popular banjo, because it delivers what really matters to a banjo’s performance in an affordable package. In the optional Maple version, it has a brighter and more focused tone. In addition to the Maple rim, resonator and neck, the Sierra has an Ebony fingerboard and composite inlays.This is a Deering Sierra built during 2010 in Spring Valley, California, in good overall condition with the optional ‘railroad spike’ capo tacks installed. It has been set up in our shop by Anne Hartman and the action is set to 5/64ths. The original Deering hard shell case is included.

❌ SOLD ❌ Flaxwood Rautia 2HB-T Resonator Guitar, 2012

❌ SOLD ❌ Flaxwood Rautia 2HB-T Resonator Guitar, 2012

The Flaxwood Rautia is an innovative instrument built in a small town in Finland. What makes it unusual is the use of shattered wood with other composites, and injection molding it. They have named the material, and the company, Flaxwood. Our observation has been that composites often have a variety of shortcomings, but Flaxwood seems to have addressed many of them.

❌SOLD❌ Steinberger XL2 Headless Fretted Bass, 1984 (REDUCED)

❌SOLD❌ Steinberger XL2 Headless Fretted Bass, 1984 (REDUCED)

Here we have a Steinberger XL2 Headless Fretted Bass, dating to 1984 and built at the Steinberger shop in Newburgh, New York. It uses the unmistakable headless design based on the L2 and is made of graphite reinforced epoxy with some plastic components (the top). The pickups are by EMG. It is in overall very good, original condition though – as is common with these instruments – the plug-in leg rest is missing. Fret wear is minor and it’s very comfortable to play, with a tight focused tone even acoustically. 
Ned Steinberger came from a fine arts background, focusing on sculpture, to create highly influential instruments, particularly the headless guitar and bass.
