Deering Calico Banjo

Deering Calico Banjo

The Deering Calico Banjo is possibly the most beautiful banjo in the entire Deering lineup! With an elegantly simple inlay package, Deering lets the AAA flame maple and amber shaded finish do all the talking. Nicely dressed up, but not overdressed! The Deering Calico banjo is a Top Level professional model that uses the best woods and materials throughout.

SOLD!! Vega Woodsongs Campfire Long Neck Banjo by Deering

SOLD!! Vega Woodsongs Campfire Long Neck Banjo by Deering

The Vega Woodsongs Campfire Long Neck Banjo by Deering is a modern expression of an older solution to a problem for banjo players:  playing in E on a banjo is always a challenge.   This why Pete Seeger had the long neck built for him. These are normally played with the neck capo’ed up three frets and the 5th string capo tack in use so the banjo is played in G.

❌SOLD❌ Dobro Model 66S Squareneck OMI Sandblast Sunburst, 1975

❌SOLD❌ Dobro Model 66S Squareneck OMI Sandblast Sunburst, 1975

Here we’re looking at an unusual guitar, the Dobro Model 66s, a wood bodied, single cone resophonic guitar with round sound holes and square neck. Its unique feature is the finish. The guitar was first given a standard Sunburst, then many extra coats of a tinted lacquer, and then that was sandblasted into a ‘French Scroll’ design. This Dobro Model 66s example dates to 1975 and was built at Huntington Beach, California.

SOLD!! Gibson GB-3 Mastertone Guitar Banjo, 1926

SOLD!!  Gibson GB-3 Mastertone Guitar Banjo, 1926

The first of the Gibson GB series of 6-string Mastertone Guitar Banjos appeared in 1918, as the GB-3 and GB-4. The GB-1 and GB-6 appeared in 1922, and by 1940, production had completely ended. The GB-5 was built only during 1925. These models were influenced by the popular Paramount banjo designs.These instruments are perhaps comparable in intent to the Resophonic guitars that were introduced by National just a few years later – meant to be used in fairly loud ensembles, often with horns, playing the Dixieland jazz that was all the rage.
