THIS AUCTION HAS BEEN COMPLETED.
Winning Bid: $2,000
The Canada Charity Banjo is entirely one-of-a-kind, made with a Honey Amber stained neck bearing the Canadian Maple leaf prominently on the peghead. With pearloid inlays of white set into the Midnight Maple fingerboard. Making this truly Canada's banjo is the shape of this great nation etched into on the back of its vibrant red resonator.
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 Hope in the Darkness , a walk that takes place in Canada for youth mental health that built a movement. A movement that brought both youth and members of the policing community together for a common cause: to promote mental wellness, youth-led culture-based solutions and improved relationships with police. The results of this event will guide the work of Strength in Continuous Change, a not for profit organization that will continue the work of Hope in the Darkness through the development of mental health, community safety and cultural lifestyle resources.
