Deering Classic Goodtime

$689.00 $521.50

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.

Now with a traditional headstock and stained satin finish. Made in USA. One of the best-sounding and best-playing, low-priced banjos available anywhere. With a Bluegrass resonator back, The Classic Goodtime 2 banjo has a 3-ply violin grade maple rim and produces a bright and clear tone.

The Classic 2 is enhanced with a Rich Brown stain, white detailing and spikes at 7, 9, and 10. The spikes enable you to expand your playing from the key of G and play in the keys of A, B and C by putting the fifth string under the spike and using a capo on the other four strings to adjust the tuning. Here is a banjo you can have right there by your easy chair and play between commercials. It’s a good bluegrass banjo, lighter weight and easy to carry. It’s great for hours of practice with an accurate neck that is as comfortable as can be. You’ll appreciate how light it is when you reach over to pick it up and enjoy playing it.

Most people who get a Goodtime banjo keep it because they love it even when they step up to their beautiful Deering banjo. The Goodtime banjo still maintains a special place in their life and this is why you donêt see a lot of Goodtime banjos on the used market. It’s a banjo you can take anywhere.

Polishing Cloth (gray): for maintaining a bright shine on your nickel-, chrome-, gold-, brass- or silver-plated parts.
