California here they come! Not only is California the home state for Deering Banjos, but in honor of Mumford and Sons concerts in the Golden State we have created the one of a kind California Goodtime Charity Banjo!
Deering recently celebrated the building of our 100,000th banjo at the 2014 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA. The banjo was a Deering Sierra 5-string banjo and was souped-up a bit with chrome plating, highly figured curly maple, engraved hardware, and an engraved armrest that says”100,000.” The banjo was presented to Stan Werbin, owner of Elderly Instruments of Lansing MI, an authorized Deering dealer for over 38 years who came on board at one of the early NAMM shows held in Chicago, IL. The banjo was accompanied by a letter of authenticity signed by Janet and Greg Deering indicating it is the 100,000th banjo in the company’s 39 year history.
