Ireland Charity Banjo

Description

TIMER REPRESENTS COUNTDOWN TIL BEGINING OF AUCTION

The Ireland Charity Banjo is entirely one-of-a-kind, made with a deep black neck bearing the shape of Ireland proudly on the peghead. With pearloid inlays of green set into the Midnight Maple fingerboard, and lush Irish green resonator this banjo is truly for the beauty of Ireland.  

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 Enable Ireland who every year provides services to 7,500 children and adults with physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities in 14 counties across Ireland. Covering childhood to adulthood, their expert teams work with the individual and their family on a plan for each life stage.
