Winning Bid: $4,560
The Virginia Charity Banjo is entirely one-of-a-kind, made with a Honey Amber neck bearing the shape and name of Virginia proudly on the peghead. With pearloid inlays of light blue set into the Midnight Maple fingerboard, paired with its purple resonator this banjo bears to the colors of the symbolic men of the Virginia State Seal.
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.
The Charity this auction will benefit is Women Giving Back . In 2007 a core group of sales and marketing professional women from the homebuilding industry formed Women Giving Back (WGB) after recognizing that access to free quality clothing was a barrier to many homeless women and their children experienced while living in the local shelters. Beginning as a program under HomeAid Northern Virginia and operating out of a humble closet at the Northern Virginia’s Builder Association, WGB Back has grown considerably in Virginia. WGB’s mission is more than clothes – their committed volunteers provide personal service and uplifting interaction in a unique boutique-like atmosphere, focused on helping women arrive at a level of self-confidence that enables them to improve their lives and achieve independence. The increased self-esteem that comes from securing and maintaining employment not only helps individual women, but contributes to stable families, which, in turn, improves to the viability and safety of our communities.
