This is a one of a kind custom Tenbrooks Legacy banjo coming out of the Deering shop in Spring Valley, California that we had to grab and is priced to sell! It is marked as a demo model on the warranty card due to a very slight issue with the stain on the neck (you can see this on the last photo on this page - we like to think of it as a beauty mark!)
This Legacy features a beautiful cremona stain and curly maple neck and resonator. It also features a radiused fingerboard and the incredibly clear Jens Kruger tone ring.
This banjo is a dream banjo that fills all the needs of tone, playability, and looks. The Legacy features a classical Art Deco feel to the inlay pattern, another Greg Deering original design.
The Legacy is a wonderful professional level banjo that is a racehorse for the performing musician and dedicated banjo enthusiast, an effortless and instantly versatile tool for boundless musical creativity. The comfortable neck is made for precise playing, and it features glued in frets for easy re-fretting for the artist who plays a lot.
The Legacy provides a limitless musical playing field, alive with clear and balanced tone from bass to treble on each and every fret. It's a pure pleasure to play.
