In celebration of 40 years, Greg Deering offers the 40th Anniversary White Oak 5 string banjo. Limited to only 40 pieces and featuring a brand new, patent-pending White Oak rim, this banjo is one of the most unique Deering banjos ever. The string response is effortless; crystalline notes ring with the resonance of a church bell, loud and clear, with precise note clarity at on every single fret, a well-known hallmark of all Deering banjos.
This sparkling tone is only enhanced by an unparalleled sustain that brings out the best in this instrument’s character. It is simply a delight to play. And here is perhaps the most unique aspect of the 40th anniversary model; it does not feature a tone ring. When you hear it, you will have a hard time believing it. And Deering predicts that many players will appreciate the comparatively lighter weight of this latest innovation in their long history of banjo manufacture.
Features a white oak neck and resonator numbered on the rear of the peg head. A matching White Oak truss rod cap personally signed by Greg Deering adds a finishing touch to the elegant inlays in the peg head while a commemorative inlay adorns the 22nd fret. A ‘AAA’ Grade Smokey ebony fingerboard and tortoiseshell binding on the resonator make this banjo an irresistible addition to any banjo collection.
