From Deering “The Great American Banjo Company” a high-end 5-string banjo with original hard shell case

From the company:

“For Clawhammer banjoists who prefer a scooped neck to ease plucking their banjos over the fingerboard we make the Vega Old Tyme Wonder. We build in a traditional “scoop″ that allows more room for the fingers and thumb of the right hand to pluck the strings over the fingerboard. We steam and bend our violin grade maple rim and install a fiberskyn head over the rim, attaching a classic “no knot tailpiece″ for a traditional old time sound. This is a light weight banjo that is made especially for musicians who want the warmer tones that go well in a string band with a fiddle and bass.

It is the mellowest banjo sound, a lovely full tone. The Old Tyme Wonder is reliable and exceptional in tone, playability, versatility and responsiveness, with a round wooody tone perfect for old time string bands.”
