TEST Scotland Charity Banjo

Description

The Scotland Charity Banjo is entirely one-of-a-kind made with a deep black neck bearing Scotland’s name and shape proudly on the peghead. With pearloid inlays of light blue set into the Midnight Maple fingerboard in a perfect contrast to the deep blue stained resonator, this banjo pays respect to the loch’s that are the sparkling jewels of Scotland

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 Kindred Scotland, a parent-led organisation that supports families of severely ill and/or disabled children to: come to terms with their child’s diagnosis and implications for the future understand their child’s limitations – and/or pain – and/or challenging behaviour learn new skills to care for a disabled child at home apply for necessary disability benefits, equipment and home adaptations find the right school and learning support cope with bereavement.  In addition to advocacy and information they are very aware of the emotional support needs of families and the impact on parents and siblings of caring for a disabled child. Last year they supported over 880 families over their services.
