Deering Deluxe Mahogany Banjo, 2011

Brand:

Instrument Categories:

Now discontinued, the Deering Deluxe Mahogany 5-string banjo was one of Deering’s most popular models, with Mahogany for the resonator and neck. Towards the end of its run, Walnut was used for the neck and resonator.

This Deering Deluxe Mahogany is in good overall condition was built at the Deering shop in Spring Valley California during June 2011. It has a few small dings and dents from normal use, and has been set up by Anne Hartman at our shop.

The original Deering hard shell case is included.

 What the builder Says About The Standard Deering Deluxe Banjo:

“Now featuring a walnut neck, the Deering Deluxe truly stands out as a banjo with it’s own tone. The walnut neck gives the banjo a perfect balance of brightness and warmth. When paired with our -06- bell bronze tone ring, the Deluxe comes alive and gives you a banjo that will stand out from the pack.

Built with Deering’s genuine bell bronze tone ring, three ply violin grade maple rim and one piece, cast, zinc resonator flange, this Deluxe is as easy to play as it is beautiful.

The mother of pearl inlay in the peghead, is the very first Deering logo designed by Greg Deering for his first banjo in 1969. The multicolor binding and high gloss finish enhance the gold and pearloid inlays on the exotic, natural ebony fingerboard. “The inspiration for the inlay artwork comes from the early Boston banjo masters. And if you look at the peghead of the Deluxe, it has some of the same elements as the Sierra, but it is much more expanded and it comes alive with the turn of the century Boston masters element – and that was just the design that flowed out onto the page. It’s a lot of fun to have that kind of artwork on a banjo that people can afford. The first professional banjo we made was the Deluxe so it always has a very dear spot to us because it was the first professional banjo we made way back in ’79.” Greg Deering

One of Deering’s oldest and most popular models, this banjo brings the power, easy playability and maintenance together in a beautiful, historically important banjo that is just as much at home on the front porch as it is on the road. It truly is a Deluxe banjo.”
