THIS AUCTION HAS BEEN COMPLETED.

Winning Bid: $1,560

The Portugal Charity Banjo is entirely one-of-a-kind, made with a Honey Amber neck bearing the shape and name of Portugal proudly on the peghead.

With pearloid inlays of red and resonator stained real green this is Portugal's banjo shining the colors of its National Flag.

The drum head of the banjo is custom made by Remo with the Delta Tour Wings Logo and personally signed by Mumford & Sons. 

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.
