Description

The Italy Charity Banjo is entirely one-of-a-kind, made with a Honey Amber neck bearing the shape and name of Italy perfectly on the peghead. Paying respect to Italy with the inlays going down the neck in the colors of the Italian Flag. Three in green, three in white and three in red!

The drum head of the banjo is custom made by Remo with the Delta Tour Wings Logo and personally signed by Mumford & Sons. 

Based on the Deering Artisan Goodtime Two this banjo has a resonator back for projection, and a violin grade maple rim that gives it a bright and clear tone. Designed and built by Deering Banjos at their factory in Spring Valley, California specifically for this auction. 

The stunning Artisan Goodtime banjos embody Greg Deering’s lifelong vision for the Deering Banjo Company – to make the best sounding, playing, looking, and best value U.S.A. made banjo that he possibly could. It is a never-ending quest that Deering pursues every single day.

The Charity this auction will benefit is The Food Bank Network - Fondazione Banco Alimentare Onlus   who are the largest social catering initiative in Italy. 102,500 meals daily have been provided to people in need by the Food Bank thanks to the help of supporters and partners. In 2017 almost 37.4 million in equivalent meals were donated thanks to the 18.711 tons of food recovered and collected.

The Food Bank Network is the largest in Italy that brings physical support all over Italy through the recovery and distribution of food for the social inclusion of the poorest people. They believe that no one should suffer from hunger, and are busy every day so that this vision becomes reality, there is still much to be done.
