The Rustic Wreath started in 2017 as a collaboration with Deering Master Dealer, Banjo.com. The result is a stunning and affordable walnut stained maple banjo that honors the heritage of the instrument, while taking on a sleek, minimalist feel.

In keeping with the tradition of some of the world’s most popular banjos, the Rustic Wreath retains aesthetic features of its older siblings, notably the inlay pattern from the Golden Wreath, the traditional prewar peghead shape, and iconic flange hole pattern. The tapered profile of the maple neck is also identical to that found on the other models from the Golden Series, giving a very comfortable playing experience.  The Rustic Wreath also shares the same deep resonator as the other Golden Series banjos, allowing for greater bass frequencies to be produced.

These traditional features are paired with a beautifully understated satin finish over a dark walnut stain, and single white binding on the resonator. This makes for a sleek take on an iconic looking instrument.

Tonally, the Rustic Wreath has a beautiful, bright crack, thanks to its Deering 06 tone ring mounted to a 3-ply violin grade maple rim – a time tested combination that features on many best-selling Deering models, and loved by audiences around the world.
