Description

The New Zealand Charity Banjo is entirely one-of-a-kind, crafted with a deep black neck bearing the shape of the New Zealand Islands on the peghead. With pearloid inlays of red set into the Midnight Maple fingerboard, and true blue resonator this banjo bears the country colors of New Zealand.

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 Variety, the Children's Charity NZ  who work to give disadvantaged Kiwi kids the childhood they deserve. They provide children in need with basic essentials such as warm bedding, school uniforms, shoes and stationery. They help provide for additional special needs such as medical and mobility equipment; as well as access to extra-curricular opportunities such as music lessons, school camp and sport. They strive to give disadvantaged children the same opportunities as other kids. Their mission is to give them a happier healthier childhood, and a foundation for a better future.
