This banjo is in near perfect condition – $1,800 ONO.
Greg Deering says about this Sierra banjo: “No one can buy a better bano. They could buy a fancier one, but not a better one. Built with the same Deering -06- 20 Hole Bronze Tone Ring, three-ply maple rim and one piece, cast, zinc resonator flange that are built into our top of the line banjos like the Calico, GDL and Ivanhoe, the Sierra is A masterpiece of playability.
The full, rich and sparkling tone of the Deering 20-hole bronze tone ring is complimented and enhanced by Deering’s proprietary, tone enhancing, adjustable tailpiece, which is now fitted to all Deering banjos. The Sierra has a slender, fast and comfortable neck with an un-stained natural ebony fingerboard is polished smooth for fast easy fretting.

Is this Deering Sierra banjo still available? I was looking at a new one from US for $1650 US + transport & GST but 6 months waiting! Does it come with a hard case and roughly what are the shipping costs to Sydney. Could you quote me please?
