❌SOLD❌ Deering Golden Era 5-String Banjo, 2000


Instrument Categories: ,

The Deering Golden Era 5-string banjo is a maple, prewar style bluegrass banjo made like the classic banjos of the 1930’s with the same materials and the same weight, design and features. It carries a vintage style Cremona Sunburst Stain finish, which really brings out the flame in the maple neck and resonator.

From the Deering description of the Golden Era:

“The Golden Era is one of Deering’s most popular banjos for traditional bluegrass bands. If you’re looking for that classic bluegrass banjo tone and look – this is the banjo for you. Adorned with a traditional hearts & flowers inlay pattern, this banjo has the appearance and feel of the prized banjos from the 1930’s. It is designed to produce the most sought-after sound, a sound previously only achieved by five-string banjos of the pre-war era. This beautiful banjo has a Genuine Deering -06- 20-hole bell bronze tone ring. The drum assembly and neck shape are designed for the traditional crisp and strong bass notes as well as the distinct clear high tones of the cherished bluegrass sound. “

This example dates to 2000 and was built at the Deering shop in Spring Valley, California. It’s in great shape with just minor wear and has capo tacks installed. The original Deering hard shell case is included.
