For Sale: Deering GDL Top Tension - Serial # 1 (sold)
Deering Top tension for sale. This banjo, to my knowledge is the only top tension ever made by Greg Deering. Serial number 1-0001-86.
Truly a collector's dream; will hold it's value!
This is a truly professional banjo that offers power, instant treble response and a lovely clear bell tone. Top tension banjos with their extra heavy tension hoop give a banjo more sustain and resonance and this one is no exception. It has excellent volume.
All nickel-chrome plated metal parts, including the tailpiece, engraved with fancy Saddle and Spur engravings with high gloss finish.
Indian Rosewood neck and resonator.
3 ply maple rim.
Deering brass notched tension hoop.
Intricately carved heel.
Elegant abalone inlays in the classic Deering GDL pattern with ivoroid bindings.
Geared Greg Deering planetary tuners.
Geared 5th string tuner.
Deering also made a special deeper resonator for it which gives in more volume, bottom end and depth.
The only flaw is two tiny holes (filled) on the side of the neck from a sliding 5th string capo which has been removed and replaced with RR spikes at the 7th and 9th frets.
It has a frosted 5 Star head.
Comes with original Deering hard-shell case with royal blue lining which is also in excellent condition.
All set up and ready to go! If you would like additional information or pictures please contact me.
This amazing banjo is 100% guaranteed to meet your satisfaction or your money back!
