This is a beautifully made, good looking and very fine sounding Deering Calico! Maple rim, Deering 06 tone ring (Mastertone-style), beautiful curly maple neck and resonator with honey amber finish. The peghead and ebony fretboard has some lovely inlay work, and the neck and resonator have ivoroid binding and checkered purfling. Top quality Deering planetary tuners. This banjo is in pristine condition; it may be c2010 but it is pretty much in showroom-new shape! Fretwear is minimal, not a scratch to be found, well set up, freshly cleaned and polished. Comes with a top quality Deering hardshell case.
