Classic Goodtime™ 5-String Banjo


This product is unavailable


The Classic Goodtime banjos were created to meet customer demands. With the more classic fiddle peghead shape (now found on all Deering Goodtime banjos, the rich dark brown stain, planetary tuning pegs and the addition of spikes at 7,9, 10 for alternate tunings, this light weight maple banjo not only meets but exceeds the features customers wanted and needed. The violin-grade maple rim is made of the same wood used on the professional level Deering models and gives the Goodtime banjo a rich, full, round note distinction.

Light weight enough to travel with, convenient enough to keep by your easy chair at home, the Goodtime Classic is great for hours of practice with a neck that is both comfortable to play and accurate to fret. With the satin finish, white inlays, and the addition of side dots for ease of play, this Goodtime banjo is not only beautiful to look at but will bring you hours of musical enjoyment.
