A beautiful banjo and a massive upgrade from the random banjo of amazon that I started with, amazing tone, and solid construction! My next banjo will also definitely be a deering

Philip Davey
Lovely to play. Truer tuning somehow than my other banjo. Interesting authentic old-time crafted look about it. Looks as though it's been made in the woods! And I'm a woodworker so that's important.
