The California Deluxe has original detailing and a sweet open back tone players love. Select ebony graces the fretboard, the heel cap and the peghead overlay for extra-fine craftsmanship. The unique peghead inlay was designed by Greg Rich and features a traditional floral pattern.

The Deluxe also features a Whyte Laydie tone ring, a bound walnut rim, a walnut neck with a maple skunk stripe and a no-knot tailpiece. This model has dual coordinator rods, 24 brackets and nickel-plated hardware. The original peghead inlay features binding for greater strength.

The California Deluxe is a great banjo for frailing or clawhammer style banjo playing. With its unique detailing and graceful craftsmanship, this model revitalizes the Recording King legacy.
