The Clawgrass™ No. 2 model was created when Mark Johnson approached Deering with one vision in mind - to offer the same solid foundation, quality, tone and playability of his original, but at a more affordable price point.
The new Deering Clawgrass No. 2 banjo has the same dynamic tone as the original Clawgrass. Using the same peghead and fingerboard inlay designs, rendered in man made materials, Deering has made this lovely banjo much more affordable for the average player.
The much sought after Clawgrass neck width (1.37") is still present on the Clawgrass No. 2, which also features standard nickel plating unlike its hand engraved, 24K gold plated sibling. The banjo gets its finishing touches from simpler yet equally as elegant binding on the neck, peghead, and rim.
Beauty and elegance doesn't always have to carry the price tag.
