The serious bluegrass banjo player need look no further than the Deering Eagle II, one of Deering Banjo Company's most renowned five-string resonators. All-maple construction and an incredibly versatile Twenty Ten tone ring combine for an instrument with not just volume, sustain, and carrying power, but a complex timbre for a unique and beautiful sound. In addition to the natural figuring in the maple, Deering add some vintage-inspired acrylic inlays on the fretboard and headstock, and a full gloss, deep red finish on the resonator and neck. Intricate machining on the hardware around the rim and at the flange add both a bit of visual flair as well as help to make the Eagle II louder and more resonant. Finally, this banjo comes with a hard-shell case to keep it properly protected wherever your travels take you.
