Saw this on Fretboard Journal's Facebook feed. Deering made electric guitars for a while, including this gorgeous Tele.
I was going through some old files and I came across this photo of a nice looking guitar that Deering made way back when. Actually, I think in a lot of ways banjos and electric guitars have more in common in the way they're built than electrics and acoustics do.
And, come to think of it, how they're played. Seriously, I can't think of anything a hot Tele-twanger would want to do that isn't bested by Buck Trent and his fancy banjo.
