The Connecticut Charity Banjo is entirely one-of-a-kind, made with a Honey Amber neck bearing the shape and name of Connecticut proudly on the peghead. With pearloid inlays of Green set into the Midnight Maple fingerboard, and paired with a tree green stained resonator this banjo pays homage to Connecticut, one of the most heavily forested States in the Nation.
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.
