Ontario Charity Banjo

Description

The Ontario Charity Banjo is entirely one-of-a-kind, made with a deep black neck bearing the noble shape and name of Ontario on the peghead. With pearloid inlays of blue set into the Midnight Maple fingerboard, in combination with the true red stained resonator, this banjo pays respect to Ontario, the home of Canada’s capital city Ottawa.

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.
