Custom Built Banjos by Deering

At Deering, we are honored and privileged to be able to create the finest American made banjos in the world every day. The only thing more enjoyable than that is when our customers invite us to  be a part of their personal creative process and choose from a huge selection of our vast array of existing custom options. The results vary dramatically from customers who want a twist on a standard model, to those who want carte blanche on a banjo and make the experience of collaborating with Deering Banjos as important as the finished product itself. This rare shared journey is one of our greatest adventures in banjo craftsmanship.

This gallery is designed to offer a glimpse of banjos that we have created in conjunction with our customers over the years and to offer just a little inspiration to help you create your dream custom banjo.
