I first saw this 1945 herringbone D-28 a few years ago and have lusted after it ever since.

The Deering Gabriella is the ultimate combination of luxurious beauty and incredible sound - the sparkle of the mother of pearl fingerboard is breath-taking like opening a box of jewels when you open the case and the tone of the Gabriella is outstanding. The Gabriella is the very top of the Deering line.
The Deering Banjosaurus is a longneck banjo custom made for George Grove of the Kingston Trio. The Deering Banjosaurus inlay features a colorful mural of the dinosaur age made from many different soapstones and mother-of-pearl.
