The Deering John Hartford banjo features a wooden grenadillo tone ring and produces a beautiful bright and "woody" tone. This banjo works great for bluegrass and more. The grenadillo tone ring allows the banjo to be much lighter in weight than a standard bell bronze tone ring banjo (about 2.5 lbs lighter) so your back will thank you, and is easier to carry around the festival campground to various jams. If you are a fan of John Hartford or want a great resonator banjo that is lighter in weight, this banjo is the one for you.
It features 5th string spikes at frets 7, 9, and 10 for added versatility, and is professionally set and ready to play. Plus, with its lifetime warranty and Deering hardshell case, you can protect your investment for years to come.
