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.

For this 2017 Sorenson Companion custom banjo, the original order specified that the logo on the headstock read ‘Sorenson’ rather than ‘Companion’.    It also has a Maple block rim and wooden tone ring, so it is considerably lighter than many banjos at 9 pounds – that’s comparable to many Les Pauls and Stratocasters.
