Deering released the new Clawgrass No. 2 banjo this past year. This is the exact same banjo as the Deering Clawgrass banjo but is made with less expensive aesthetic materials (no gold plating and engraving, etc.). The tone and playability is exactly the same. Mark Johnson currently uses this banjo as his banjo when he travels.
