Description

The Pennsylvania Charity Banjo is entirely one-of-a-kind, made with a deep black neck bearing the State's name and shape proudly on the peghead. With pearloid inlays of deep blue set into the Midnight Maple fingerboard, and striking golden yellow resonator, this banjo embodies the key long time colors of the State's Flag.

The drum head of the banjo is personally signed by Mumford & Sons with a personal message from the band. 

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 Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission  who serves the homeless through two locations in Philadelphia: a meal service program serving three meals a day to anyone in need and men’s shelter in Center City and a transitional home for women in the Germantown neighbourhood of Philadelphia. The Center City shelter also houses a long-term recovery program for men.

The Mission does not receive government funding and relies on the generous contributions of caring individuals, families, churches and businesses. Donations are supplemented with income from two thrift stores. Founded in 1878, they have reached out to the homeless in Philadelphia for more than 130 years.
