The mother of pearl inlay in the peghead, is the very first Deering logodesigned by Greg Deering for his first banjo in 1969. The multicolor bindingand high gloss finish enhance the gold and perloid inlays on the exotic,natural ebony fingerboard. "The inspiration for the inlay artwork comesfrom the early Boston banjo masters. And if you look at the peghead of theDeluxe, it has some of the same elements as the Sierra, but it is much moreexpanded and it comes alive with the turn of the century Boston masters element- and that was just the design that flowed out onto the page. It's a lot of funto have that kind of artwork on a banjo that people can afford. The firstprofessional banjo we made was the Deluxe so it always has a very dear spot tous because it was the first professional banjo we made way back in '79."Greg Deering
