Description

The Wales Charity Banjo is entirely one-of-a-kind, made with a black neck bearing the shape and name of Wales perfectly on the peghead. With pearloid inlays of white set into the Midnight Maple fingerboard, and green resonator, this banjo represents the lush green lands of Wales.

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.
