Sweet tone and elegant looks.

The subtly elegant high-gloss finish, the ebony peghead overlay with mother-of-pearl inlay, and fancier binding on the resonator enhance the beauty of this sweet-toned banjo. Outfitted with the same genuine Deering tone ring, one-piece flange, and 3-ply rock-maple rim used in the Sierra and Greg Deering Limited models. The Deluxe offers the Sierra's sweet tone in a more elaborate banjo that's still modestly priced. Includes case ($180 value).

White and gold engraved inlays designed by Greg Deering adorn Deluxe banjo. It is a sweet sounding professional quality mahogany banjo with Deering's 20 hole -06- bronze tone ring, fast neck and comfortable feel. It's a beautiful step up from the Sierra with added detailing and high gloss finish. It is an inspirational banjo for the dedicated musician. The Deluxe was the third model of the Deering line, originally designed with simple Mother of Pearl Diamond inlays back in 1979 and embelished and upgraded to the beautiful new inlay pattern Greg Deering designed in the summer of 2009.

The Deluxe has a sweet singing professional quality tone. Easy to play with clarity and good note separation.
