Deering Calico

Sold. Please inquire for next available!

One of Deerings more elegant offerings, the Calico features exceptional materials throughout: curly maple for the resonator and neck, fancy pearl fingerboard inlays, ivoroid binding with checkered finish on the side of the fingerboard and resonator, all finished in a rich honey amber. The sound is wonderful with the crackle of an old Mastertone paired with Deerings smooth, refined clarity.

The crisp, bright tones and delicate beauty of the Calico bring out the real fun of playing a banjo. It has a beautiful honey stained curly maple neck and resonator with purfling and ivoroid binding. Mother-of-pearl scroll inlays adorn the ebony fingerboard. The neck has a two-way adjustable truss-rod, as do all Deering banjos. Bound in white, the peghead has an elegantly finished look. The slender neck shape is fast and easy to play.

The power, brilliance, and clarity of tone come from our three-ply maple rim, zinc flange, and the Deering -06- 20 Hole Bronze Tone Ring and , combined with a figured Eastern hard rock maple neck and resonator. All Deering 5-string banjos are fitted with a geared fifth string tuner for smooth, easy, and precise tuning.

The inside walls of the resonator are tapered to maximize the sound and give you the instant response and clear tone of a Calico banjo.
