Deering Goodtime Artisan Americana
New upgraded Americana has a “Midnight Maple” fingerboard with fancy inlaid position markers, classic brown stain on neck and rim, a laser-cut logo on the peghead, planetary tuning gears, and railroad spikes at frets 7, 9, & 10. Like the standard Americana it has a maple neck, 3-ply violin maple rim (12″ diameter), quality nickel-plated hardware, Remo Renaissance head, geared 5th string peg, armrest, and a satin finish. A great beginner’s instrument that you won’t grow out of quickly. Like all Goodtimes it is made in the USA. The Artisan Series, new for 2016, replaces the Classic Goodtimes.
The Artisan Goodtime Openback
The stunning new Artisan Goodtime banjo embodies Greg Deerings lifelong vision for the Deering Banjo Company to make the best sounding, best playing, best looking, and best value U.S.A. made banjo that he possibly could. It is a never ending quest that Deering pursues every single day. So with improved tooling and a higher than normal dose of creativity, we bid farewell to our old friend the Classic Goodtime and welcome with open arms the stunning aesthetic of the new Artisan Goodtime Banjos.
The Artisan Goodtime 2
Featuring Midnight Maple Fingerboard and Vintage Artisan inspired inlays!
With a bluegrass resonator back for projection, the Artisan Goodtime Two banjo has a 3-ply violin grade maple rim and produces a bright and clear tone that projects well and is louder than its open back counterpart. The Artisan Two is enhanced with a rich brown stain, white detailing and spikes at 7, 9, and 10. The use of spikes enables you to expand your playing from the key of G to easily play in the keys of A, B, and C.
