OVERVIEW

Sweet tone and elegant looks.

The subtly elegant high-gloss finish, the ebony peghead overlay with mother-of-pearl inlay, and fancier binding on the resonator enhance the beauty of this sweet-toned banjo. Outfitted with the same genuine Deering tone ring, one-piece flange, and 3-ply rock-maple rim used in the Sierra and Greg Deering Limited models. The Deluxe offers the Sierra's sweet tone in a more elaborate banjo that's still modestly priced. Includes case ($180 value).

White and gold engraved inlays designed by Greg Deering adorn Deluxe banjo. It is a sweet sounding professional quality mahogany banjo with Deering's 20 hole -06- bronze tone ring, fast neck and comfortable feel. It's a beautiful step up from the Sierra with added detailing and high gloss finish. It is an inspirational banjo for the dedicated musician. The Deluxe was the third model of the Deering line, originally designed with simple Mother of Pearl Diamond inlays back in 1979 and embelished and upgraded to the beautiful new inlay pattern Greg Deering designed in the summer of 2009.

Deering deluxe

Comments about Deering 5-Deluxe 5-String Banjo:

Im completely satisfied with my purchase and thats a first when buying a banjo.
Ive owned several top of the line banjos. This banjo blows them out of the water. Very nice neck,quality parts,sweet sound,rings like a bell at all positions up and down the neck.Very nice looking.Lifetime warranty will never need to buy another banjo. Musicians friend had the best price and the cheapest shipping. I live in Alaska so no free shipping for me. It has all the same parts as there most expensive banjos and in imo is better looking than them. Sounds like a Deering banjo not a Gibson.
Ive had several expensive banjos and they all had quality issues but I cant find a single flaw on this banjo.everthing is perfect.
Musicians Friend had the best price and the cheapest shipping. The banjo was still in tune after 4000 miles of shipping. The set up of the banjo was great, the bridge was spot on the right position. I lowered the action about .032 but thats just preference.

Comments about Deering 5-Deluxe 5-String Banjo:

This is the best banjo ever. I tried alot of banjos from Gibson all the way down to the beginners models. The deluxe Deering has the great banjo sound and feel. For the price, you can't go wrong. Snap, crackle, pop.
