Description

Buy your Deering Clawgrass No2 Banjo with Dxe Hard Case from Eagle Music Shop and receive our premier workshop setup at no extra cost.

Each banjo we supply is individually set up in our on-site Banjo Specialist Workshop here at Eagle Music. Any Banjo purchased from Eagle will be fully SET UP, checked for intonation and playability and tuned ready for playing straight out of the box!

The Clawgrass™ No. 2 model is created when Mark Johnson approached Deering with one vision in mind - to offer the same solid foundation, quality, tone and playability of his original, but at a more affordable price point.

The new Deering Clawgrass No. 2 banjo has the same dynamic tone as the original Clawgrass. Using the same peghead and fingerboard inlay designs, rendered in man made materials, Deering has made this lovely banjo much more affordable for the average player.

The much sought after Clawgrass neck width (1.37") is still present on the Clawgrass No. 2, which also features standard nickel plating unlike its hand engraved, 24K gold plated sibling. The banjo gets its finishing touches from simpler yet equally as elegant binding on the neck, peghead, and rim.

Beauty and elegance doesn't always have to carry the price tag.
