Deering John Hartford Banjo with Pop-On Resonator & Case

It's like two banjos for the price of one! The pop-off resonator allows you to quickly transition between styles that generally use a resonator (bluegrass, country) and those that don't (old time, folk). Designed in collaboration with the late John Hartford, this handsome instrument draws inspiration from pre-1900 banjo designs. The fretboard inlays feature a teamboat Gothicinlay pattern based on the architecture of riverboats.   More Details...
