Deering Rustic Wreath 5-String Maple Bluegrass Banjo With Case

Monthly payments available Learn more

I’ve always loved the sound and feel of the Deering Sierra line, a whole lot actually!  But I’ve always personally liked the more traditional look of the pre-war style banjos.  Alas!  Both have come together in the Deering Rustic Wreath.

The Rustic Wreath is a stunning and affordable dark stained maple banjo that pays tribute to original pre-war banjo specs, while taking on a sleek and smooth feel. In keeping with the tradition of some of the world’s most popular original 5-string banjos, the Rustic Wreath retains many of the traditional features, notably the wreath inlay, the traditional prewar double cut peg head shape, and iconic flange hole pattern.  All throw backs to original Gibson specs.  A Deering 06 tone ring mounted to a 3-ply violin grade maple rim makes for a crisp, clean tone with great balance and projection.  Includes free setup, spike installation, manufacturer lifetime warranty, free Hardshell Case, and free shipping within the lower 48 US!
