Pre-Owned Deering Golden Era 5-String Banjo with Case

Monthly payments available Learn more

A great price on a near new condition Deering Golden Era.  This banjo is one of Deerings most traditional designs, and is very similar to a Gibson Earl Scruggs model.   

 This one is in great shape and has some of the nicest woods we’ve seen, including an upgraded maple armrest which is very comfortable!  This banjo has power for days and that classic maple “growl” that all the Scruggs fans love!  

Includes original hardshell case, free shipping within the US, professional setup, and 5th string spike installation!  Also includes a brand new, unused set of Cheat-A-Keys D-tuners!
