The Legendary Giveback III Banjo is here and truly one of a kind! We have once again teamed up with North Carolina indie-folk rockers The Avett Brothers, Cheerwine®, the legendary soft drink of the South, for the third consecutive year to present the Legendary Giveback III Campaign for 2014. As part of this we have created a NEW one of a kind “Cheerwine Red” maple banjo with a custom banjo head. This is being auctioned off for charity on eBay beginning December 8th and closing December 17th, 2014.
Check out and bid on this banjo to be yours here: http://ebay.to/1ytCZsq
All proceeds from this auction will go to benefit the three major charities chosen as this year’s partners:
The Legendary Giveback III banjo has been personally played by Scott Avett and will be signed by all of The Avett Brothers the night of the benefit concert on Dec 13th 2014 in Myrtle Beach! You can see this beautiful banjo and Scott playing it in this video...
Modeled after Deering’s popular Classic Goodtime Two, this resonator back banjo is crafted with a hard rock American maple neck, violin grade maple rim, and stained a stunning custom Cheerwine Red Sunburst. The custom drum head of the banjo bears the unique artwork of the Legendary Giveback III Campaign by Martin Kvamme. It is remarkably light, weighing only 5 ½ pounds; about the same as an acoustic guitar. It also comes with spikes already installed at frets 7, 9, and 10, which act like a capo for the 5th string enabling you to expand your playing from the key of G to easily play in the keys of A, B and C. As special bonus the auction package includes a gig bag carrying case. This banjo is American made, right down to the banjo head made by Remo in California!
Deering, The Avett Brothers and Cheerwine are happy to join their resources in this effort to help improve the world community.
