I am fortunate to live in the San Diego area so both Deering banjos and Taylor guitars are close by. Although I have toured Taylor a couple of times, I had never toured Deering until today.
Here in a nutshell are some of my thoughts:
We toured the Deering plant back in about ‘93, when I had just signed on as a dealer. Greg and Janet were extremely hospitable, and I even got to play the ‘Banjorsauras” which was back in the factory for a video shoot. Greg and I were playing Cripple Creek for the reporter, and she asked how long the song was, and Greg answered, “until we decide to stop”...
Just my luck that the lady that gives the tours was on vacation the week I was in S.D. So I never got to do it. Sounds great.
