We love Deering Banjos and the Deering Sierra 5-String Resonator Banjo is a great example of why. The dark matte finish matches the nicely figured maple to create a sleek look. Pair that with the elegant fingerboard and headstock inlay and it makes for one fine bluegrass banjo package. Also included is the Deering limited lifetime warranty and a deluxe Deering Hardshell Case. Here's what our friends at Deering say about the Sierra:

Our most popular professional grade banjo for almost 30 years. We are proud to manufacture the Sierra as affordably as possible and still retain all of the high end features that affect the tone and playability. Simple detailing allows us to keep the cost down, while still giving you all the important components of a high quality banjo.
